In August, the Swiss Federal Wrestling and Alpine Festival will take place in the Basel region for the first time. The Swiss national sport is often linked with conservative values in its staging. The piece DR CHURZ, DR SCHLUNGG UND DR BÖÖS by Johanna Heusser already premiered in the fall and approaches swinging with fascination and skepticism. With two dancers, she makes movement material and rituals of the sport her own in order to critically and humorously negotiate images of the body and gender. In view of the upcoming giant event in Pratteln, the piece will be performed again - on the power plant island in a circus tent and framed by a swinging workshop and a discussion with exciting guests about possible future designs of the living tradition.
Concept and choreography: Johanna Sofia Heusser
In cooperation with ROXY Birsfelden
