A Dance Piece on the Border of Language and Consciousness
tanzApartment cie.

A diverse ensemble of hearing and deaf dancers, actors and a musician move between exclusion and belonging. The dance piece examines a variety of forms of expression: from sign language to spoken language and written language all the way to dance. Together with the choreographer Vanessa Huber, they illuminate language mechanisms in a political context as well as deepen personal experiences of anger and powerlessness.
