What (else) they are instead of

Workshop and Studio Showing with HZT students BA „Dance, Context, Choreograpy“


May 2019


To say ‘I’ means turning the other into a foreign entity. Can intimacy embrace otherness to form a kind of common being?

10 years ago Jared Gradinger and Angela Schubot made their first duet ‘what they are instead of’. To celebrate its birthday, they want to expand this duet work by teaching it to a group of HZT-Students. ‘what they are instead of’  initiated their research on debordering the body through an un-conditional togetherness. They will experiment how this work can be explored on a multiplicitous scale, in an orchestral way; a multitude and polyphony of a radical dedication to the other through breath and body.
