Patchwork Body #1

‘Patchworkbodies’ unites fine arts, dance, music and film. Five short dance movies and a contemporary dance choreography developed from a process of the exchange between artists. The paintings of Sabine Auer were the starting point of the creative journey. Bodies in pieces, cut open. The sewed and scarred bodies give space to associations and let the bodies speak about enclosed emotions. The tormented and cricked joints show the disturbed relationship between the self-image and the loss of identity. There are no faces. The human is defined by the body.
