HIER=JETZT: Alina Belyagina

We live in a time of rust (russ: Rzhavchina). Decaying images resembling pop divas appear in a whimsical landscape with a tinge of an after party on the ruins of capitalism. We are confronted with fantastic beasts who dance, burp, jerk, wheeze and sing. Their appearance embody a dualistic truth of a human: militantly horrendous and erotically attractive at the same time. In times of ecological crisis they are constructing a plastic heaven. Feast of weirdos in Time of Plague.

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.
