how to be tool

Traditionally the relationship between dancer and choreographer is not merely artistically motivated but also a matter of production systems, as the terminology illustrates: The dancer is using his or her body as “instrument”, at the same time she has to be “tool” in order to develop and perform the choreography.

The short solo how to be tool translates these relations into a precise and complex structure of movement which is defined by a clear-cut time and space frame. Different body rhythms and physical velocities are put on top of each other to create – together with the musical composition of sounds and noises of manufactured origin – a sculptural choreography of “meta”physical resonance. The tool is the message.
