In “Allongé” Julian Weber continues his interdisciplinary approach, based on an examination of Constantin Brânçusi's sculptural work in collaboration with a ballet dancer and a pole dancer. Brânçusi's oeuvre and his pioneering formal and contextual approaches serve as a starting point for the development of a stage set which is investigated for it's performative and choreographic potential. Through the collision of the different disciplines and dance styles, both opposites and parallels of these techniques are examined, as well as a possible entanglement of the styles. Ultimatly the possibilities of emancipation from defined role models, subject and object attributions are explored with a contemporary perspective on tradition and handcraft.
