“ONDA” is a research, performance and art production space curiously discussing the relationship of humans and nature against the background of anthropocentrism.

 

ONDA is an artistic collaboration between

Hannah Ma (Hannah Ma Dance, GER | The People United, LU)

Sebastian M. Purfürst (LEM-Studios, Berlin)

and their teams

 

 

 

                               ONDA ISLANDS 2021:

                               ONDA | live performance

ONDA | video and sound installation with performers

  ONDA | music album

          ONDA | digital performance

ONDA | photobook

 

 

The artistic research focusses on elements of dance, physical acting, audiovisual compositions and immersive digital arts which are woven into transmedia storytelling — experienced through live performances, installations, online presentations and new media formats.

 

How do we define the “non- reproducible magical soul”, the aura, the prehistoric part in every individual, the meaning of love in this modern, digitalized and globalized society? How can we deal with our hidden desires and our deepest fears in times of a pandemic and in the isolation of confinement?  ONDA is an emotional road trip into the abysses of ourselves and the abysses of the oceans that remain as silent witnesses of global colonial structures. ONDA explores the relationships of the performers since their collective trip to Southafrica back in 2019 until today and how they deal with confinement and the cold, technical world. The team asks itself how they can become and build an identity in the stress field of the digital and analog world by analyzing the mythology and hybridity of mermaids in our contemporary narratives.

ABOUT:

 

Emma Appel: Luxemburger Wort, 11. Mai

„Die Welle als Symbol der Energie- fließender Widerstand:

Die einstündige Choreografie beeindruckt durch die radikalen Ausbrüche der Tänzer*innen wie durch die fließenden Übergänge. Mitunter wirken die Tanzfiguren wie organische Zustände… 

Die Choreografie erschafft mitreißende Momentaufnahmen und Synergien nach dem Vorbild der Naturgewalt und im Einklang mit ihr.

So erweist sich die Performance als hybrider Organismus- entstanden aus dem analogen, dem digitalen und dem mythischen Raum. Für den Zuschauer ist „ONDA“ in mehrfacher Weise ein sinnliches Erlebnis: bedrohlich, stürmisch und mythisch. Wer sich auf die Choreografie einlässt, kann sich mit den Tänzer*innen hineinstürzen ins Ungewisse. Zugleich ist es ein ästhetisches Erlebnis, das mit den gängigen Konventionen des Zeitgenössischen Tanzes bricht.

Nicht zuletzt wirkt die fließende Choreografie wie eine trotzige Antwort auf die Covid-19 Welle.“
