Short study on Nothing
by Iris Heitzinger
Sunday 10th > 9 pm
Short study on Nothing is a whole-hearted venture, an experiment between performer and audience. The choreographer and performer Iris Heitzinger focuses on the present moment and it’s continues flowing towards memory. Her point of departure is an attitude of unintentional-ity in order to savour each moment in it’s emergence, presence and passing and to invite the audience to experience this cycle with her. What remains are traces of the occurred in our memory.
