Portraits in Othernessis a "triple bill" par excellence. The focus is on three promising young artists and their stylistically different dance solos.
L'Héritièrethematizes existence and dignity and catapults the audience into the fascinating world of "Krumping". Mamu Tshi is a promising voice from the Swiss street dance scene. Dickson Mbi is a second artist whose heart beats for hip-hop. With his impressive "popping" skills, he captivates the audience. The SoloDuendeist a personal narrative, which carries memories and deep feelings powerfully outward.
Joy Ritter completes the outstanding trio. She combines Filipino folk dance, classical dance training and voguing vocabulary. She performs the soloBABAE, which is inspired by Mary Wigman's famous soloHexentanz.
All three explore the boundaries of their artistic imprints and develop their own choreographic signature. Behind the concept of promoting young international talent are choreographer Akram Khan and his dramaturg Farooq Chaudhry. Swiss artist Mamu Tshi was mentored by choreographer Philippe Saire. The three mentors have the desire to pass on their own experience and offer a platform to talented artists. A great benefit - not only for the people on, but also for the people in front of the stage.
