This year the MADE IN COLOGNE shows festival two works which are cooperations between dance and music in COLOGNE: TachoTinta with Benjamin Grau and Geraldine Rosteius with Mr. Shirazy.


The Cologne younger generation dance company TachoTinta shows the production “to Re: moment”, a choreographical discussion with the moment of the Erinnerns.
A strange interaction between fact and illusion originates, because of every detail different from us emphasises, keeps in memory and again causes. What exactly do we perceive – and it is aware to us when we a moment document? Can one create a common recollection?
With this piece TachoTinta takes part in the 19Th Internationally dance festival Daegu in South Korea.

Auxiliary: Mijin Kim (concept / creation), Seulki Hwang (creation / dance), Silvia Ehni (creation / dance), Benjamin Grau (music)

Geraldine Rosteius: "Metanoia"

With the project "Metanoia" it concerns the collision of our increasingly digitized world with the nature whose part we are, in the end.
Besides, live Electronic, performance, dance, voice and Visuals mix to a konfrontativen mix of light and shade, from noise and silence, from toughness and river.
The nature as the spring of the life calls us, so that we come back. However, we are deflected so much by our possibilities won anew that this call fades away often unheard. Often it must come to disasters, until we reflect again on where we come and what we are.
The world created by us of the technology outgrows again bit by bit us and develops her own voice shouting after self-determination.
"Metanoia" puts this fight by the abovementioned performativen means in scene. On internal impulses based movements imposed expiries go against from the outside; acoustic sounds dive into digital synthesis forms, dance performance and music collide.
The light draught plays with different spectra of our perception and shows a higher phenomenon of the nature as a steady element. Besides, the way which is walked in the performance is significantly. The different personal poles
run contrary to each other and move up to the complete effacement. Melting permits only this resolution basing on excessive demand to a new big whole. At this point the border also resolves to the audience.
The Audience is included in the final part and makes the experience that without them this performance could not be entire. “We ares all drops in the ocean of unity” is a text line from this finale.
Metanoia, a new programming of the view of our immigration in the digital world, is the key to form, in the end, the Hybridität between person and technology in our sense.
