Can the endless, united, monstrous bodies within a group become a place of resistance? With the choreographic practices she adopts in COLLECTIVE JUMPS, Berlin choreographer Isabelle Schad joins forces with Hamburg and Berlin artists to explore the political potential of communities for the LIVE ART FESTIVAL. Together they train in aikido, folk dances and body/mind centring, using the movement material they gain to create a layered collage of bodies and limbs – a body landscape, which constantly transforms into new intense images. The search for equality in movement and for the end of the hierarchy between body parts forms the foundation for this utopia of community building. COLLECTIVE JUMPS is a collaboration with the artist and philosopher Laurent Goldring, with whom Schad also created the UNTURTLED series and the piece DER BAU, which formed part of the Tanzplattform Deutschland at Kampnagel.


In an introductory Talk on Thursday dance critic Gabriele Wittmann will discuss the phenomenon of the ‘Spring’.  Taking Hannah Arendt’s text ‘On Revolution’ as her starting point, she will analyse the relationship between aesthetic appearances of these dancing characters and the social and political uprisings of the 20th century.
