OFFSET There is no guidebook on how to survive the agonising hurricane of pain when you find your most intimate self betrayed. Trapped between walls of pain, you try to fight your way out. How much of the pain do you need in order to survive, what time do you get to test the truth of your expectations and how much do you let yourself be told of what is right? In fight for breath, love balances us sharply on hopes blade.
Iwa Pele – a visual dance research collaboration by Kathrin Gramelsberger with Maarten Krielen and Anne Verheij
Iwa Pele is a concept from the Nigerian Yoruba religion and means balanced character. In Iwa Pele three artists go in search of this balance. Nigerian-German initiator and choreographer Kathrin Gramelsberger explores her mixed heritage. Inspired by Orisha – deities of the Yoruba people, this visual dance performance combines video art, Nigerian celebration dances and contemporary dance in a distorted way to discuss tradition and identity creating new points of view.
