Through the wire




Through the wire is the intimate meeting between choreographer Anne-Mareike Hess and one audience member in a one-to-one phone call. Our voices meet in the ether. Time and space are suspended, and we will slowly enter a fantastic world of dance, only through the power of our minds and intertwining words: What kind of dances, movements, bodies and spaces can we create together in the theaters of our minds?

In the last year we all painfully had to learn what it means to live in physical distance to each other. Born out of the need to re-create the experience of the liveness of the performance, Through the wire offers a mutual listening and a new way of experiencing dance and movement.

Possible languages: English, German, French and Luxembourgish.

Each of the conversation will last for roundabout 50min-60min.

There are two versions available of this project:

"I was high a long time after the session"

"I had a very wonderful experience - both flying and sinking  deeply into the ground of the forest. I actaully feel both happy -  laughing and energized! Thank you!"
