Project Description

ONE ONE ONE

With One One One, the choreographer Ioannis Mandafounis developed a vis-à-vis performance that allows the audience to become part of the scenery. Two spectators from the audience are invited to be the source of inspiration for the two dancers. While they sit in their seats, the dancers dance only for them, they pick up their feelings and emotions and send these – translated into movement – back to the audience. The spectators can leave whenever they want and are not obliged to interact. The rest of the audience can watch how the dancers perform for the two seated spectators.

One One One creates a choreographic space in the area of tension between performance and emotion, which facilitates an experience for the spectators that is both unusual and stirring as well as moving and awakening. By breaking down the customary barriers between performers and spectators in the theatre context, an intensive and intimate connection can arise between both that would otherwise never come about among dancers and a hall full of people.

The venues for One One One are always public spaces. They are deliberately used as fields of experimentation and as places where performances don’t usually take place, to invite the audience to an unexpected experience.

The guest performance One One One is the starting point for the new production KONZENTRAT.
