Becoming (Heidelberg)

Live score for a choreography by Iván Pérez

The third version of this piece, this time for Dance Theatre Heidelberg.

‘Becoming’ by Iván Pérez, made its stage debut in 2017 as a trio, and was further developed with Dance Forum Taipei in 2018. It is a movement examination of the notion of constant change featuring live music by composer Rutger Zuydervelt. The piece continues to evolve itself and was now reshaped with the dancers of DTH. It is an exploration of the sensitivity and power of a community that comes together in a fascinating interplay of dynamics. Accompanied by Rutger Zuydervelt’s music, an attentive world emerges, in which opposite directions and impulses of movement have to be renegotiated by the dancers. The ability and potential to create reliable connections as a group is explored by the bodies through physical communication. The sensations and perceptions of the individual, however, always remain visible and an important part of the reflection on our common existence. Through the constant physical contact and the connection of the dancers we recognize questions that relate to all of us. Our attention is steered towards finding out who we are in relation to others and who we become.
