Flight of Shadows
- Butoh meets transformer -
Aya Irizuki dancing on 33,000 m2 of industrial concrete floor, a communion with shadows and light fleeing through the spatial dimensions. The gestures and arabesques of the body invoke the unusual halls; a rhythm that — in a dialogue with Verena Wilhelm (dancer) and six point nine (music) — dissipates, recovers and scrutinizes between the columns.
A unique space full of energy. The former MUMA power plant, a piece of Berlin's industrial history, is located in the center of Berlin. Built around the same time as the Berlin Wall, between 1960 and 1964 it was intended to provide the people of Berlin with warmth.
