‘Better than that’ is a study of the consequence of the insatiable need for beauty (outwardly and inwardly), and the result of the residence at dance-studio DansBrabant, the Nehterlands and a second residence at Tanzhaus Zürich, Switzerland. The solo is danced by Natalie Wagner.

“Ultimately, our desire to be different brings us to what we are least, not to be. Where identity always reference to be present, this desire develops an absence. It is a desire to disappear." (Bram Vreeswijk)

SEELENWALD is a dark melancholic and poetic fairytale on a blurred line, between dream and reality, dead and alive with gentle tone of absurdness. The playground, a dark forrest, is a metaphor for the state of getting lost in our subconsciousness on the border between fear and joy. Seelenawald is a surround choreography system, the performance will take place alround the audiance. The audience will have the positionof invisible observers, like threes in a forrest, the witness of time. The viewer will meet different people and emotions, from close and far away at the same time, and chooses his own perspective. In addition, the audience doesn't just see the performers but also feel and hear them, like as; shuffling feet, breath, the wind of someone rushing by. Images of threes (or an abstraction of them) will be projected on all walls surrounding the audience. The light , inspired by the light in a real forest: light and dark at the same time, irregular and changing, as if the sun shines through the branches and leaves. The ligt level is obscure the viewer must sometimes strain to see something or somebody. Characters appear out of the darkness and disappear again in it.

Shows:

2 Shows, 30 June 2010 Verkadefabriek, Den Bosch (NL)

Seekingfor the essence of emotion in motion, Katja Grassli filtered in ' WALK WITH ME', the emotional charge of different music tracks and transformed that into her dance language.

Substantive 'WALK WITH ME' mirrors public space, and invites the audience and leads the audience into the inner worlds of various passers-by.The viewer is in the middle of the happening, in the middle of a square, and becomes the observer. Not only from a distance, but also very close, several characters come along, in different states of emotions.They stop, they continue, their paths intersect.

And the ever-present wind, a wind quadraphonic composition, unpredictable loud and quiet, which blows everything forward by the swirling air.

NieSoloSeiN is not only dance-theater but also a unpredictable system that melts all limits we are used to. Nothing is as expected. The show begins before its official beginning.The noise from the audience waiting in the foyer will be deformed on a subtle and mysterious way. Places like stand and stage will change unpredictable their function during the performance. The audience is no more just audience.

The atmosphere switches unprepared: the light operates as a switch between image and music; the image disappears and leaves the audience suddenly in the noisy darkness behind. Situations that took place previously will return later with an absurd meaning. Beautiful get ugly and ugly become beautiful.

The public become slowly but surely a part of a lucid dream with peculiar logic, in which aesthetics and humor are not missing.
