Choreographed by Alica Minar
A dance piece for four dancers in which the humor that arises from the handling of the scenographic material, and the interest in the barely controllable physical energy emerging from anger, unite in a bizarre way and thus create a fairytale-like world of images.
The principle force of this piece is tension. We are going to play with you by diving deep into subjective experiences of strong emotions and then pull you out with humoresque situations keeping you on top of everything that is happening in front of you.
How do we reflect about the fact that we are part of an „angry society“ where violence is part of our daily lives? Through coping with expressive and disturbing, yet captivating scenes, EXPLOSION is triggering the process of spectators inner reflection on the topic. Do you enjoy being angry? Do you find people in amok bizarre or even funny? Do anger and violence scare you? Is it all too much to digest at the same time?
EXPLOSION addresses the contemporary phenomenon of living in an „angry society.“ Due to the constant stimulation from the environment, inner and outer tensions accumulate, so that the explosion seems to be the only way out.

The queer choral Schräger Vögel questions societal norms using the body and throat singing. While categories such as “harmony” and “euphony” represent dominant norms, “noise and guttural sounds” mutate into the critical alternative. Using their bodies and voices, the dancers perform personal mantras while they explore and experiment with the colossal acoustic dimensions of a sacred space.
