FUGEN

costume design
2015


In ihrem neuen Solo setzt Isabelle Schad die Erforschung von Bewegungen fort, die ein Ausdruck von musikalischen Konzepten sind. Schad kam über die Musik zum Tanz.
Die Fuge dient ihr als Analogie für den Körper im Zustand des Trainierens, der die Prinzipien des Jagens und Fliehens, Gebens und Empfangens, der Leere und Fülle vereint. Fugen ist eine autobiographische Arbeit, in welcher exemplarisch die Konstruktion des Individuums als Teil von Systemen, Erziehung und Disziplinen aufgezeigt wird.


With Fugues, Berlin choreographer and dancer Isabelle Schad continues her work between musical concepts and their expression in movement. Coming from a music background, she attempts to look at her own (hi)story and the origins of (her) movement between discipline and pleasure, examining the body and its energies in its materiality, process, and time.
The fugue serves her as an analogy for the body in exercise, where the principles of chasing and fleeing, giving and receiving, emptiness and fullness, are becoming one.
Fugues is an autobiographical work in which the performer’s body serves as an example for the construction of the individual within disciplines and systems one cannot escape from.
