zer-brech-lich (TOURING)

Zer-brech-lich (fra-gi-le): a word falls into pieces. Or becomes the chorus to a hymn on fragility. By saying „fragile“, one lends particular attention to the word, and particular beauty. With zer-brech-lich, choreographer alessandro schiattarella and his team create a music theatre piece as a tale of bodies in their difference. The three disabled perfomers victoria antonova, alice giuliani and laila white will explore their own – and other identities. They will try on sounds like clothes – searching for their own pop music moment. For what happens on stage, might be the rehearsal to a sparkling concert...THROUGH Dance and text, sounds and objects, the piece demonstrates how treating on fragility can become a political message, a vision of a higher level of awareness. It might encourage new experiences: we know the sound of something breaking. Yet, how does it sound when a thing is being kept from breaking?
