  • 20 & 21 Dec. 20h

On the threshold of the fourth industrial revolution, humanity is about to change once more. Will we, someday, open the wardrobe and think about which body to take out today? With our bones as contemporary witnesses and together with the audience, the artistic team rummage through the past, the present and possible future scenarios. bones dares to take stock of the human evolution in a sceptical, bizarre, speculative, emotional manner and works itself into the human chassis with delight and different point of views. Of flesh and blood, right to the bones, virtually.

contemporary dance class

spirales circles serpentines

the class focuses on the dancers relationship with the floor; practices centrifugal and spiraling movements in order to move economical; involves breathing dynamic and the release of energy throughout the body in order to activate the relationship between the center line, the joints and the perifery. There is a focus on the skeletal structure that will help to improve physical perception, technical skills and awareness. Movement sequences build up during the entire class, which challenge and train functionality, performance skills and body and mind.

dance first, think later!

While we’ve been working in the WordPress themes industry for over a decade, we had to take our time and do a detailed planning for creating a theme as complex as Magic is. Basically, it took us weeks upon weeks to polish this theme to perfection, making sure that both its visual aesthetics and its functional capabilities are as high-end as possible…

about us

bollwerk lets arise pieces and initiatives that grapple with the zeitgeist and the changing society and reflect within the artistic practice.

bollwerk also explores the potential of site-specific dance. In nature, in the public space and in buildings Andrea Boll, along with fellow artists and companions, conceives and opens up new dance traces and designs a dance idiom that receives the environment, opposes, reflect, complements and enriches it. Interpretation patterns are revealed and changed by dance statements.
