research with Diane Gemsch, Melanie Wirz, Ivan Balgajevic in October 2013, Dynamo Zürich
research with Andrew Morrish, halle.li, March 2014
You undergo how the dancers and musician create a scene with your help. We depart from press photos and conversely art photos from the Czech photographer Jan Saudek. Those pictures are the departing points for each time twenty minutes improvisation.
The dancers and the musician bring the pictures to life and make you experience them in all their facets, possible interpretations and associations. We take you along on a journey through different epochs, ways of life and 'conditions humaines'.
We don't show a finished performance but include you in the making process. We show the influence from everybody on stage on the action and make ourselves depending on your influence, opinion and comments. You are playing a role in the process of getting to a performance. Every show of Bollwerklab 6 is therefore unique and exists only if you are there.

dance performances in nature and in the city
This project explores the potential of dance outdoors such as in nature, in urban areas, in various public and unusual spaces.downhill & downtown opens up and develop new approaches and canvases for dance by constructing a suitable specific movement language: we therefore create a dance form influenced and shaped by the environment; it includes, reflects, completes and enriches it. The choreographic composition plays with the given surroundings and consequently, the spectator's perception of space is affected and changes.
