Doris Uhlich: BOOM BODIES

opening of the festival

The first time the Austrian choreographer Doris Uhlich performed at CoFestival was in 2015 when she visited us with her performance More Than Naked.

This time she will perform her work Boom Bodies in which she continues to research the traces the body leaves in space and the resonance of time. Similar to an array of her other choreographies, this performance also focuses on the pulse of the group organism and its unfinished body into which the artist lays traps full of creative and curious questions tied to the knotted points within the bodily relations, through which she subtly ensures an appropriate choreographic optics also for the audience. The incompleteness of the performance is opened as a potentiality, as a force that uses repetition to produce configurations with minute differences. Novelties and surprises emerge and they tentatively create changes that provide time for our bodies. Repetition – which Doris Uhlich creates through delicate choreographic procedures, the delocation of the ritual space, in which the choice of dancers, compositions and appearances open the space for viewing from various perspectives − is in opposition to representation.
