What do we have in common? What can we share? What makes us different? Verena Billinger and Sebastian Schulz illuminate the relationship between the individual and society, from the part to the whole. The result is a "Geteilter Abend (AT)" (Shared Evening) consisting of several interconnected dance pieces and works: at least one solo for Verena Billinger about questions of biography and portrait, and a formal-abstract dance piece about socially shared forms of movement.
In the context of the choreographic workshop they will give insight into first approaches for the solo.
Making "bio-graphy" as writing of one or life the starting point of a choreo-graphy, here she asks how a person in her singularity is communicable, and what traces can also be found and revealed for the non-communicable of the intimate, personal and private.
