H - Schritte in schwarzen Räumen
„... rather than being in a studio, I worked in my flat,
mostly in the evening, after nightfall.
A window attended as a mirror.
In the darkness the glass reflected my movements and the space in which I was.
At the same time there was the possibility to have a look outside (...).
Perhaps these early attemps in front of the window reflect my interest in theater:
the relationship between the inner and the outer worlds,
what’s personal and what’s universal,
nearness and distance, dreams and reality,
past and present.”
Raimund Hoghe on the creation of „Meinwärts“
„H - Schritte in schwarzen Räumen“ pays tribute to one of the greats of German choreography:Raimund Hoghe.
Fascinated by his unique aesthetic and clarity of expression, Tortelli & Wurm enter into the black spaces Hoghe created, exploring them for themselves while always remembering him and keeping in mind this iconic perspective, which lets details speak for a whole. They follow his motto: throw your own body into the fight! Tortelli, who has been working solely as a choreographer for many years, returns to the stage – or rather, the screen – for this project. He draws on the knowledge and experience of his dancer's body, while also using the body of his dramaturg, Miria Wurm, as a quote in the film.
The idiosyncratic sound language of AGF/poemproducer undercuts and comments on the action.
