K.I.nd of human

This performance is about human fragility under the omnipresent cloud of artificial intelligence.

 

It is amazing what great (progress?) steps we are making. Perhaps we are already no longer even able to control what we have created.
But where is the uniqueness that determines the essence and destiny of being human? My innocent decisions out of a romantic whim, my wrong decision after a hard day. Where is my smile just because the sun is shining? Where the tears for someone who has nothing to do with my life? 

We are unique. We are human.

WHAT SHE DIDN´T SAY...YET

 

The eternal dialogue with myself, pages upon pages full of words written with invisible ink. 

Screamed into the wind to let them go to distant places, which are hard to reach for me.

DAVE

A short movie in tribute to the famose jazz composer Dave Brubeck, his "Points of Jazz"  arranged from Arcis Saxophon Quartett. 

The history of Points on Jazz began on a cold day in March, 1958. Travelling through Poland between the cities of Llodz and Poznan, I jotted down a romantic, melancholy theme that seemed to express the feeling of those who sat with Mr. Brubeck on the train, staring out at the barren winter landscape.

Inspired by this real story a surreal story fo 2 man that leave inside of bubble, for them, those train windows that inspired Brubeck were the perpetual windows through which they lived their lives.

KNITTING GIRL

Knitting girl it´s a solo installation. 


A fantasy story about a girl born 700 hundred years ago, we don’t know exactly when. She’s a fragile creature that is stuck in a loop. Knitting it’s the most easy way for her to hide her self from the rest of the world. 

Knitting is therapeutic, is meditation it is a mantra. 

 

Like the most beautiful of the butterfly she reversing the course of nature knitting her self back into cocoon and then destroying the same cocoon in a loop, a life loop that we are not able to witness because we would need to watch her for years.

A production of Arcis Collective by 

Roberta Pisu and Arcis Saxophon Quartett 

 

 

 
 

GEBISSEN

Inspired by an anthropological research of a traditional festival in Italy (the taranta festival) in which the whole village opens their doors for the community, and they all dance on the streets without break for 48 hours. The myth is that in a ritual, people were intentionally bit by a poisonous tarantula, and for this reason the sacrificed one danced relentlessly to free himself from the poison and negativity that had been inflicted on him. 

Going deeper into the origins of it.

 

A creation for the production SPARKS for the ensemble of the Staatsthetaer am Gärterplatz in München.

HEIMAT

Going from one city to another is a privilege.

Discovering new cultures and meeting different people every day allows us to open our minds to new perspectives.

Enriching our soul with the stories of others makes us understand, regardless of our native country, that we are all constantly looking for our identity.

 

Who are we now? What have we become after all?

I think it is much more than the story of a simple and nostalgic memory of where we started our journey.

Roberta Pisu and Arcis Saxophon Quartett

KHOROVOD

Khorovod is the beginning of a bigger project. 

The idea behind was to tell a story of a human being as there are many: the story of a man who has reached a stagnation point, a total emotional block that chokes him

<<Federico Fellini >>.

Created for and with the precious contribution of the dancer the result is a grotesque uncontrollable character, with an insatiable need to move. 

A production in Collaboration with Lago film festival (Italy)

 

MOMO 

 

Based on a novel by Michael Ende.

A magical story about time-thieves and a little girl who brought time back to people. 

With the help of bicentennial Master Hora, the guardian of time and a magic turtle called Kassiopeia, Momo, a little girl coming from nowhere, is the only one able to bring back time to people, which was stolen from them by the Grey Men.

World premier Opera created for the

 Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz in München

 

FRIDA KAHLO

Inspired by the work of one of the most charismatic women in history: the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.

 

Together we traveled through her exceptional work and who she was as a woman.

A woman lost and prisoner of love, perhaps addicted to it , as maybe she was of her famous life partner

Diego Rivera.

A dance theater piece created for and with the artists of the youth department of the Staatsthetaer am Gärtnerplatztheater in München.

 

JE SUIS FAUST 

From the masterpiece of the German poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe, written in 1808, where he tells the agreement between Faust and Mephistopheles and their journey to discover the pleasures and the beauty of the world.

 

JE SUIS FAUST is a modern and fresh vision, where everyone can see himself as the figure of Doctor Faust in the middle of the timeless fight between good and evil.

A dance theater piece created for and with the artists of the youth department of the Staatsthetaer am Gärtnerplatztheater in München.

MINUTE MADE 

FREUD KOPF is a journey into the brilliant mind of Dr. Sigmund Freud. The voice of his wife always present and the memories of his patients going in and out makes the journey a constant change of images.

A journey into past and present memories. A feeling similar to that of a first awakening after a night full of dreams.

 

One week, 20 dancers, one room... these are the rules for  the new format created by the artistic director of the Gärtnerplatztheater Karl Alfred Schreiner.

A creation for the production MINUTE-MADE

 for the ensemble of the

Staatsthetaer am Gärterplatz in München.

DE AMORE 

Based on Plato's philosophical dialogue "Das Gastmahl" the youth department of the Gärtnerplatzthetaer wrote this new work.

A piece of dance theater focused on love and in the search of it.

Does the idea that out there in the world exist the perfect half of us make us live with hope or with an incessant unsatisfaction?

A dance theater piece created for and with the artists of the youth department of the Staatsthetaer am Gärtnerplatztheater in München.

 

FLESH DANCE

This solo was born from the choreographer's desire to give voice to those who were forced to live the life and desires of others.

However, sometimes we should take ourselves less serious and learn to smile more often even when we are living the worst dream you can imagine.

The story of a young vegetarian butcher.

 
 

SIE 

This piece tells one of the many stories that many have lived and told.

"Coming out" is an act, an awareness, it is the freedom to express love that is independent of one's sexual orientation. Despite the freedom in our society, the world is still full of prejudices and taboos.

What are the consequences of this double moral?

A solo work for the Staatstheater am Gärtenerplatz in collaboration with Gasteig München.

UN-PREGNANCY

If I were a father my family would be my first priority...

If I were a father I would work to give my child all of the chances to have a life that they dream of...

mmm...If i was a father? I would teach my children what my father told me ...

If I were a father I would teach my children to be patient with the world, it can be unjust but the moments of beauty and love make it worthwhile...

If I was a father.... my child will know love......
