I am not the one who you think I am
Andrea K. Schlehwein
+ NETZWERK AKS | Platform for Contemporary Dance + Art

Premiere 3rd of March 2017 | 8 pm | @ ART SPACE stift millstatt
Performance 4th of March 2017 | 8 pm | @ ART SPACE stift millstatt

Whenever we are dealing with existential questions, doubts and concerns, we find ourselves thrown back to a lonesome desert island. The search for our own identity, questions of 'Who am I?' and 'Do I want to be the one I have become?', permeate the three protagonists in Andrea K. Schlehwein + NETZWERK AKS's first new production of 2017. 

In 'I am not the one who you think I am', AKS sketches a quiet, fragile, physical landscape in concentrated form. Held back and unagitated, AKS choreographs closely along the strong physicalities of her longstanding collaborators Unita Gay Galiluyo, Maria Mavridou and Simona Piroddi, who go back to their personal dance histories, revisit dance sequences from movement repertoire like La Bayadère, Forsythe and de Keersmaeker and finally, like snakes shedding their skins, they arrive back in the present through subtle movement sequences.
As in one single breath, AKS unfolds a dance experience that (beyond contemporary trends) places all emphasis on dance itself and understands the struggle for one's own identity as a fragile building of past experience, memories and the desire for one's own ephemeral self.
