Final Works MA Solo/Dance/Authorship

Following two years of practice led research at the HZT Berlin, students graduating in MA Solo/Dance/Authorship present their final performance work.

Naledi Majola„In Flux“ is a performance of Black gender play, with suits and the performer’s body as its primary materials. An expression of a desire to become uncapturable.

In One Choi "Venn Bodies" artists with different interests and backgrounds exchange their works of art and interpret each other’s works from their own artistic perspectives, exploring the diverse relationships that emerge.

In her body-based investigation "Ang-ish Thing(s)" Min-Suck Kim aims to s(t)imulate the emergence of the Ang-ish Thing(s) as a parasitic being between cuteness and the monstrosity behind it.

Nicole Wysokikamien "In my next performance I will make you laugh" unfolds:

a childhood picture
an imagined choreography
a play on nostalgia
an impossible translation
a place between tenderness and sorrow
a question of how and what to dance

In Crispin Lord "Resurrection (A Bad Copy)" the performer is an assistant director. He is tasked with piecing together a revival of Peter Maxwell Davies’ music-theatre work Resurrection (1987).

In Matteo Haitzmann "Make It Count" various disciplines are brought together using a technique called "Jumping Hypnosis".

These heterogeneous performances present a broad palette of individual body based performance work, which responds to and is driven by questioning dance and choreographic modes for artistic practice within contemporary solo and collaborative processes. Each new group of students brings their own personal research questions into the MA SODA program and each year is different from the years before.

Free admission.
