Genau Dance Company - Kreislauf
Information for Genau Dance Company - Kreislauf at Cockpit Theatre, Inner London (Dance or ballet). Kreislauf is a German word which literally translates as 'circulation of the blood' - Kreis meaning circle and lauf meaning run - and is the inspiration for a challenging and exciting new collaborative dance theatre project by Genau dance company, directed by Maika Klaukien, with an original score by Olivier award-winning Michael Haslam, lighting design by Jonathan Samuels and scenography by Miriam Nabarro. A single human heartbeat requires a symphonic coordination of opposites; narrowing and widening; contracting and relaxing; coiling and uncoiling, all of which happens, unseen and largely unfelt, in under a second. When blood flow is interrupted, our life-force is threatened. The mysterious and sacred power of the heart, its spiritual and cultural symbolism and inherent value, is universal and the ultimate human leveller, impervious to money, power and might. Following on from Klaukien's Ebb and Flood in 2017, which explored the repetitive withdrawal and return of the tide, Kreislauf is the second in a trilogy investigating the theme of human resilience, exploring how our contemporary society deals with our ever changing world.
Performers Trimmer (saxophone), Akane Abe, Carla Goncalves, Jinji Garland, Kaori Whiting, Nami Furukawa, Rina Wako, Thomas Wilson, Maaya Egami.
