Ballet national de Marseille / (LA)HORDE: “Age of Content”

As part of Tanz im August
35th International Festival Berlin
presented by HAU Hebbel am Ufer

The virtual is by no means a direct representation of reality. It has long created affective worlds with their own power, influencing social interactions and desires in the physical world. Within (LA)HORDE’s imposing set design, such interactions between the intimate and the public are played out. The dancers of Ballet national de Marseille respond to the space with dance moves known to have gone viral. In doing so, they allow different imaginaries to interconnect with one another, from action movies to musicals, from social media choreographies to video games, to the discreet art of stunt work.

A group of five people stand wide-legged in front of another person in an inverted quadruped stance and look down on him.
