In Dawn and Day, I set a goal similar to one archaeological excavation, navigating through the different layers of the fairytale of Sleeping Beauty and wear them down: 

layers running through the time, through the retelling of stories in different eras, through different interpretations and illustrations, the constant change of morality, perception and spiritual subject. 

I'm concerned with the symbols, the actual archetypal ones Content of the fairy tale, its truth and the movements of our souls expose humanity, beneath the multi-layered material of this cultural heritage are hidden.

 

Dawn and Day is a complex, detailed, animated and moving Painting. 

An architecture based on honesty, rhythm, musicality and weight builds and the commitment and courage of the dancers, with that I work and the willingness, connection and dynamism

comes to life within this group.

This is for you. For you, who is looking for a new beginning. For you, who feels nothing and feels too much at the same time. For you, whose body I can recognise from far away and who is alien to me when being close. For you, whose back is telling me more than the face I’m holding between my hands. For you, who doesn’t feel synchronised with anyone, who is longing to connect – waiting, falling, stumbling. For you, the one I’m running after.

You and me, we are brothers.
That's why I could easily call you my enemy. Someone who sets traps and invents obstacles in order to get me off track and make me lose my direction. You know a lot about me. More than others. But I have decided not to see you as my enemy, but as a mystery, like I see myself. That's the more challenging way. But I feel, that digging deep enough and going far enough will make me find something familiar in you. Something I trust. Something that will bring me joy. I care for you.

And you were the only audience of that play. Consistent till the end.
Why?

What is it we are most ultimately, intimately longing for?
In everybody's heart there is this seizing, driving yearning for something. It is probably the most private thing we know about ourselves.

length 31min

co-production Dansekappellet Copenhagen, Dock11 Berlin

 

performed at Dock11 Theatre Berlin, Bolzano Danza, Daegu International Dance Festival Korea,

Španski Borci Cultural Center Ljubljana, Deltebre Dansa Spain

A mystic encounter with the forces that build your universe. The silhouette of a non-human. What is a king? Who or what do you surrender to? Molimo a journey in search of the other through legends and myths, created by movement. It allows a journey, a departure and return, both for the spectator and for the dancers. For this we often lack space in many other contexts.

If no one can see, there is nothing, and if there is nothing, there is darkness.
Nothing is dark and silent, and your certainty is everything. In nothing, you are everything. The night left and chaos broke. All is gone. Now you are all. You are the first. Every single step of yours is the creation of the next.

Mångata

created 2016 for Frontier Danceland Singapore

choreography Sita Ostheimer
music Adrien Casalis
light Sita Ostheimer
length 29min

performed at SOTA Studio Theatre Singapore | Milieu 2017

Mångata explores the point where chaos and order interchange roles. The chaos and order that is within you, and in relation to you, me, and us. The moment when chaos recedes into beautiful harmonies, and order regresses into an uncomfortable disturbance. A sweet nightmare. A sensitive revolution. The reflection of the moon on water.

Metanoia

music Adrien Casalis
light Sita Ostheimer

What does it mean to lie in a performing art situation, to trick or convince the audience to believe in something that's not true. Do we as performers have a responsibility that the information the audience get, what the audience see, is true, or do we have a responsibility to inform them if it's not? Can we serve them lies as the truth?
