Part 2 of the Solo-Trilogy Körper ohne Macht


Only suitable for German speakers!


In „The Fire from within“, Angela Schubot shares her practice and personal body realities with her audience. Through spoken language, she invites us to participate in a world,that would (otherwise) remain fully beneath the skin. The idea that language, thought and movement occur independently of one another in the body, for Schubot, is a cliché that she in turn dismantles. Guided by her intuition, she sets herself on the search for tangible evidence of the contrary in this imploring workshop-performance. Partly anatomically concrete, partly fantastical, but never didactic, Schubot takes her participating audience members on a journey through (individual) internal and (collective) external worlds. “The Fire from within” is the second part of the trilogy “Körper ohne Macht,” in which the choreographer seeks to dissolve the boundaries of the body understood as a “super-controlled explosion thing“ along with her ally and doula Martin Clausen.

„What stayed with me the most was your ability to strip away all of the references that could have brought me to pass judgement, and along with them, the polarities that destroy so much in this ego-istical world: performance vs. workshop, art vs. spirituality, active vs. passive, aspirations and de-mands vs. letting go, formal vs. entirely intimate communication with me, personal vs. general, simple vs. complex, just to name a few.“
