HOUSEWARD BOUND—DANCE THEATRE PRODUCTION

Under the artistic direction of Farah Deen and Olivia Mitterhuemer, four
Austrian dancers examine the diversity of house dance in terms of
tempo, rhythm and dynamics. In particular, great attention is given to the
energy of House music, which has its origins from the clubs of Chicago &
New York.
By means of improvisation and choreography, Cat Jimenez, Farah Deen,
Olivia Mitterhuemer and Tina Rauter explore the origin of House Dance,
which bring along diverse states of mind. in the new production
"Houseward Bound", the four women embark on a path that allows the
audience to fall into a state of trance or briefly drift off the image of the
dancers.
(When) will it get boring? When does House music get impulsive
and how does that affect dance? Various music genres of electronically
produced music allow the spirit of liberty, love and club culture to be
resurrected.Besides the obvious focus on House music’s energy and
trance, the quartet also works with accurate precision in their repertory.
The dancers play with different formations which are regularly broken or
rebuilt during the performance, as well as with unisono parts which are
interrupted by individual happenings.
