Tanz mit dem Tiger/ Pablo Sansalvador. tanz:digital II [Making Of]
Dreharbeiten | 13.1.2023
Inspired by a quote by Christian Drosten, according to whom overcoming the Corona pandemic is like dancing with a tiger, choreographer Pablo Sansalvador uses the limit of physical distance imposed by restrictions as a creative possibility, designing a choreography in which two dancers perform live together with four “Distant Dance Makers”, present only through their digital avatars. The audience watches the performance through tablets that make the avatars visible, and moves freely in the space to follow the choreography from different perspectives, realising that physical reality is only one of the countless levels we can create with.
Within the framework of tanz:digital II, the German Dance Film Institute Bremen has set itself the task of building a bridge between the motivation of the realising artists and the focused circle of users. In concrete terms, this means that “making ofs” will be created for about 10 individual projects, preparing potential users, whether they are tech-savvy or not, for what to expect if they want to entrust themselves to one of the many new offerings.
Tanz:digital II is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media in the NEUSTART KULTUR programme, the DIS-TANZEN support programme of the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland.
