In ‘Warping Soul’, the dancers emerge within a space that is constantly in transit. At the mercy of external forces, they move within movement. Through the disorientation and reorganisation of bodies and space, Andreas Hannes explores the dynamics of bouncing and warping*. By questioning the body’s agency, he aims to intensify the magnetism and binding between bodies and space to create a tantalising atmosphere for an otherworldly dance.
‘Warping Soul’ was inspired by the practice of continuous skipping (as in skipping down the street) that Andreas Hannes has been developing since 2017. Key elements of his practice were road-trips, transiting landscapes and aerodynamic forces.
*warp: to bend or turn from the (original) direction or course
