In modern functional systems such as economic, political, but also private systems, in which people move in the 21st century they should act as reflectively, quickly and effectively as possible. The contemporary body is subject to a specific time regime of acceleration: restless, dissected and hyperactive. Hypothetic Bodies breaks with this doctrine and explores the state of contemplation as an active gesture of questioning. Thereby the performance investigates bodies, sound and materialities that meet in a vacuum between action and stasis. In this extreme state, these bodies develop their own distorted rhythm, togetherness and temporality which always contain a notion of potentiality.
Due to the pandemic measures Hypothetic Bodies resulted in a film version in collaboration with the filmmaker Svenja Simone Schulte. The zoomed-in camera view allows the choreographic material to be explored in a different way. A cinematic dramaturgy of deceleration that follows the body closely evokes different bodily temporalities. Through specific editing, the body dissolves into individual parts and the space in which it moves becomes unidentifiable - a landscape that allows different bodies and temporalities to appear.

Supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media and Kunststiftung NRW. With the kind support of Uferstudios GmbH, Ateliergemeinschaft Milchhof e.V. and Maschinenhaus Essen.
