@ Theaterhaus G7, 2021
@ Ringtheater Berlin, 2022
Leashed Unleashed offers us a look at the mechanisms of control to which the human body is subjected - external control as well as internal discipline. What do we experience physically and affectively when we are in a state of losing control or being controlled?
Field research and interviews with people who deal daily with adaptations of the body to
(self-)imposed social control mechanisms inspire the choreography. Ambivalent movement material and poetic stories of professionals in fields such as plastic surgery, the BDSM scene or fitness training are put together in a visually powerful scenic collage that creates divergent and free spaces of perception.
