an hommage to two grannies

 

The stage gives opportunity for a meeting that never took place – of two grandmothers whose life-stories are connected by belonging to the same generation that has seen and endured the big changes of the 20th century: fascism, socialism, and now the failing of capitalism. Their stories talk about forgetting and their bodies talk of the weight of time.

One tailor and one weaver, two women from Croatia and Germany, buzz in the space as images of light to enter into a dialog with performers, their own granddaughters.

Two contemporary dance artists discuss the possibilities of relationships, intentions, physical identities and heritage, ways of working with sound and the body. In their approach, they play with the borders of dance and theatre performance.

The research is based on the moving body of the 4 protagonists. It counter-positions romanticised images of a grannie with physical realities of aging, being a woman, sacrifice, love, identification, sickness and death…

In this artistic collaboration, Sanja Tropp Fruehwald (VRUM, Zagreb, Croatia) and Jule Flierl (Berlin, Germany) create a surreal world inspired by works of Rene Magritte, a fragmented world that poses questions about the family, stereotypes of youth and aging and the construction of identity.
