Elisabeth Schilling

Dancer-choreographer, Elisabeth Schilling and visual artist and designer, Alexander Ruth present SIXFOLD, a piece that brings together several disciplines, drawing on an in-depth study of movement between man and objects. On stage, the transient collides permanently, a sculpture replies to a constantly evolving choreography… Thus, a relationship develops between body, space and music, a relationship that has never existed as a distinct entity, but one that is defined by the way they are combined and mutually blend together.

The title of the piece relates to artistic research developed by Elisabeth Schilling, called “The Manifold Body”, allowing her to devise a movement from six perspectives: space, imagination, impact, time, texture, transition. This model is also the starting point of the choreographic language and the design of the sculpture.
