Edan Gorlicki (Heidelberg/Groningen) : Boiling Cold // Dance
Our world is experiencing an enormous technical progress with developments to make life easier; quickly and efficiently. But is that really the case? Because processes shape not only the system, but also the people who live in it. Individuals exist who constantly want to adapt, who want to be faster, smarter and more efficient: errors and omissions are undesirable.
The result is an imbalance that literally cooks in our bodies: We are trying to accept the system and at the same time we feel the urge to rebel. In Boiling Cold two dancers embody these conflicting principles of adaptation and protest. Dealing with scenarios of the year 2066, the choreography draws the portrait of a perhaps not very distant reality: Shown is an environment of failure, an atmosphere free of solidarity and empathy, in which people try to communicate with each other.
