Inspired by the design ideas and architectural concepts of the Bauhaus founded 101 years ago in Weimar, the performers take the principle of “form follows function” quite literally, while simultaneously deconstructing it.

By using playbacks of recordings of various materials – glass, wood or plastic – abstract spaces are evoked. The performers go through attraction and repulsion, affection and distance; and they wrestle each other (or wrestle for something), while the sounds of crackling, crunching, groaning and grinding pour out of mobile loudspeakers: ceremonies of stretching and twisting. The ensemble acts with an unfathomable logic in the tangle of voices, shapes the fragments of meaning, the splinters of song, all the synthetically mangled foreign tongues, the music and the noise into bodily emotions and inter-personal display of relationships.

Liquid Loft was founded in 2005 by choreographer Chris Haring, musician Andreas Berger, dancer Stephanie Cumming and dramaturg Thomas Jelinek. Liquid Loft’s performances and installations always combine contemporary dance with other contemporary art forms and strive for a synthesis of the arts. For its unconventional imagery and use of forms, distinctive acoustic stage settings and high performative standards, Liquid Loft has garnered international critical acclaim and was awarded the Golden Lion for Best Performance at Venice Biennale in 2007.
