Canadian choreographer Aszure Barton is a pioneering innovator of form with an impressive career: With works for the likes of the Bavarian State Ballet, the English National Ballet and the National Ballet of Canada, she has facilitated the evolution of highly specialized dance companies into the present. In addition to her own company, founded in 2002, she is an Artist-in-Residence at the University of Southern California, along with colleagues including William Forsythe. Barton has developed a comprehensive choreographic language ranging from classical ballet to urban pop culture. Together with eight of her most trusted dancers she will now come to Hamburg for a two-month creation period to develop #WTF - in collaboration with German musician Hauschka. The experimental pianist and composer plays in large concert halls, regularly composes for dance and was nominated for an Academy Award as a film composer. For #WTF, Hauschka, along with fellow musicians, will perform a live score that explores an intensive dialogue between dance and music. This transatlantic collaboration will take place against the backdrop of increasing dystopian rhetoric worldwide, in which language serves to escalate, discredit and sabotage dialogue. In #WTF, however, Barton and Hauschka reveal passionate, intelligent bodies and sounds, which demonstrate humanity’s capacity for coexistence.
