What do we do when we show ourselves.
What do we do when we watch.
In «Vielfalt» Nicole Peisl, choreographer and dancer of the Forsythe Company, asks, how do the conditions of performance affect (amplify, transform, charge) how we manage to show ourselves and how we manage to perceive. Victory and defeat, stillness and gesture, sound, humor, posture, ropes and two beautiful dancers, these are the ingredients out of which «Vielfalt» is composed. In making «Vielfalt», Nicole Peisl has worked closely with dancers Elena Giannotti and Satu Herrala. «Vielfalt» grows out of Peisl's ongoing creative, research and teaching collaboration with philosopher Alva Noë.
