Karin Pauer/ Choreographer/ Dance

this is where we draw the line

a collaboration with Aldo Giannotti

In this performance the gathering of the audience literally becomes a network in the art space, where new links with strings constantly generate and change various spatial constellations. The performers Karin Pauer and Arttu Palmio provide instructions, which are used to develop and discard divisions, connections, boundaries, and patterns. Based on black-and-white concept drawings by the visual artist Aldo Giannotti and his dramaturgical proposals, in combination with the ambient soundscapes of Paolo Monti, the audience is incited to conceive themselves as a choreographic community in which each constituent element is interconnected with the others and absolute autonomy cannot exist. Regular visitors to donaufestival know Karin Pauer as a performer from the dance company Liquid Loft. Following her highly acclaimed first works as a choreographer, she has developed a performance especially for donaufestival, which takes notions of the collective body as its startingpoint.
