HIER=JETZT: Tomer Zirkilevich
I call it espoir

I call it espoir is the latest research of Tomer Zirkilevich Company towards an interdisciplinary physical-theater solo. The work is brought together through a process where all of the artistic elements co-evolve and have equal importance in the making of the piece. Such a method results in this peculiar thing that happens in the space between what is being shared on the stage and the audience, this particular human exchange.

Its narrative evolves through the struggles of pursuing one's dreams, dealing with issues of transformation, violence, fear, failure, and evolution. No matter what life gives you, being yourself, following your path, you can fulfill yourself, your dreams, and you can overcome it. Nothing is ever done, everything is always becoming. This ending is a beginning, this beginning an ending — all making room for the next step in an unending process of becoming and being whole.

The artists-for-artists initiative sets a sign of solidarity with the dance makers of the independent scene also in times of Corona, and invites 14 choreographers to work on their choreographic ideas for two weeks. HIER=JETZT is a laboratory situation in which the choreographers try out their piece approaches in parts or as a work in progress, and present them for discussion under professional conditions (light, sound, stage) in an open space format in mutual exchange. The sharpened aspect of play development is intended to help artists to realize full-length productions. As this platform, like the one in 2020, will unfortunately be a "Corona version", the results of the work approaches will only be available to the public in digital form from April 20.
