How do feelings of fear and threat affect people in times of political and societal change? This is the question explored by DIN A 13 tanzcompany in the second part of its inbetweenPOWER project. On stage, there is a diverse ensemble of five dancers: They come from Germany, Turkey and India. Three are men, two are women, and two of them live with physical distinctions. In this production, DIN A 13 tanzcompany also applies the ‘mixed-abled approach’ in terms of dance and the aesthetics of art. Events on stage are complemented by videos showing the dancers in their personal surroundings.
‘in BETWEEN us’ brings greater depth to the choreographic and cinematic material gained through the first part, ‘inbetweenPOWER’, under the condensed viewpoints of women and men. The focus here is on grappling with personal experiences of limitation and threat, and with the fear of losing independence and freedom: Are there any areas in which women’s claims to power are shifting – and, if so, what areas are these these, specifically? By what gender-specific means is this power won or exercised, and what influence do religious thought patterns and traditional values wield in this regard? How are open spaces developed in which women or men can elude the social conventions of culture or tradition?
