CONTINUE I – Tongue
Liew \ Viehstädt
Premiere 09.02.2018, DPAC Theatre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
CONTINUE is a series of three dance pieces, which are produced in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, Penang) and Germany (Hamburg, Berlin). The work is about continuously repeating patterns in nature and human behavior. In three parts, the work tries to extrapolate one of the most typical, enjoyable and problematic patterns of human being: communication -> relationship -> touch.
CONTINUE works with each of those topics and tries to find it’s unique abstraction into movement and dance.
The first part TONGUE is dealing with the different intentions of the spoken word in relation to movement. The second part TRIANGLE is investigating the many impalpable and constantly repeated ways of inter-human relationships, while the third part TOUCH is finally taking a look at the fundamental meaning of physical contact for merging things, societies and humans.
