Choreographic and curating up-and-comers at ada Studio
"Other Worlds” are on the menu in the 69th edition of the NAH DRAN ("UP-CLOSE”) series at ada Studio. As part of the program, three junior choreographers share sixty minutes of stage time: Japan native Aya Toraiwa dedicates herself to migrant on-the-go and striving towards an unknown destination. She is especially interested in the acceptance of fragility. Fragile, too, are the moments between appearance and disappearance the Iranian choreographer Forough Fami deals with together with a dancer-trio of supposedly fluid bodies. The Australian dance artist Rachell Bo Clark shows a 20-minute-video on virtual reality and reflects on the body and its potential in and for imaginary landscapes. For the special edition NAH DRAN extended: Listen Victoria McConnell has put on her curator‘s cap. The Californian dancer and choreographer allows the audience to take a selective look at the live relationship between music and movement. One has to highlight that the fact that Gabi Beier, the Director of ada Studio, has young artists curate shows since last year illustrates just how consistently she is committed to promoting young talent.
