Nati Blanco & Lena Visser “Modus H2O”

03.Nov. 2023 PREMIERE
04.Nov. 2023
8 p.m. each

Water is omnipresent in our everyday life in all 3 states of aggregation (solid, liquid, gas) – it influences our social/human interactions and our environment. The states of aggregation determine our actions, our mood and necessities and needs of our environment, which we perceive or (can) ignore. MODUS H2O is dedicated to these aggregate states, their effects and the resulting tensions: a classic flamenco drag dress stands for the constant flow and changes – if we change the traditional use and meaning of a garment and its associated movements, we also change the resulting – actually set – movement patterns and specifications.

Immersed in blue underwater light, deconstructed flamenco meets contemporary dance and experimental electronic music.
