REQUIEM FOR A PIECE OF MEAT
Under the direction of Daniel Hellmann, a group of dancers, vocalists, instrumentalists and two pigs have gone through a joint working process that unwinds the traditional order of bodily functions and assignments. Dancing, tripping, groaning and grunting, they transform the stage into a space of interspecies encounters. Who here is animal, human, thing? How free can we be?
Mountains of meat and moving limbs interweave themselves with musical languages from several epochs to form a requiem in seven movements. A commissioned work by the young composer Lukas Huber confronts the historical material with the sound of intestines, the voices of animals and the musicality of their processing. Poetry and objectivity. A farewell to allegedly established categories. A funeral mass in the midst of life.
After Traumboy, a documentary solo piece about sex work, the young choreographer, singer and performer Daniel Hellmann pursues his research of a transdisciplinary art dealing with the contemporary body, a sensitive and social body with all his contradictions and paradoxes
