CELLA - from Paul White and Narelle Benjamin, premiere in Stuttgart
CELLA from Paul White and Narelle Benjamin will be at the Theaterhaus in Stuttgart during the Colours Dance Festival on 08./09. of July, supported by the Tanja Liedtke Foundation.
By constantly emphasizing our individuality and our ego, we forget how much beauty is in our similarities. The most complex structures in our biological system are the same for us all. Two Australians are looking for the natural symmetry that surrounds us: Narelle Benjamin is a contemporary choreographer with a special interest in the perceptiveness of her body, Paul White is the first new addition to the Wuppertal dance theater in the post-Pina Bausch era. In endlessly varied patterns that unfold in our bodies, they unfold in wonderful mirror images, almost like human rorschachests. Fluent and organic, their movements evolve from a yoga ritual, recounting endless cycles, microscopic forms, and their ongoing evolution. Thus, a new insight into our bodies arises through the external form.
