ZOO | Thomas Hauert | Zaungast/Zaunkönig (working title)

For the first time in Brescia and in an Italian premiere, the new work by ZOO | Thomas Hauert, a historical figure on the international choreographic scene. Known for the depth and rigour of his choreographic movement, Hauert loves to explore and search for connections. Hence also the relationship with music, from pop to contemporary, from jazz to baroque, plays an important role in his work. His latest work, which is still being created and is also co-produced by the Fondazione del Teatro Grande in Brescia, welcomes and develops a creative process in which psychological investigation, inner life, emotions and the unconscious are the driving force behind the movement.

“My fascination with dance is closely linked to its sensual aspects, the feeling of dance, of movement in the body and what it feels like to watch it. An important part of my creative processes, and by extension my teaching methodology, stems from my desire to explore and maximise the creative possibilities of the body in movement and interaction – with other bodies, with internal and external forces, with music – and to go beyond the habits inscribed in it. It is a very concrete approach in which matter emerges directly from our bodies confronted with forces and space. An abstract but expressive dramaturgy develops, closer to musical composition than to theatrical narration. The audience is taken on a sensory and emotional journey that engages the unconscious as much as the analytical mind.” Thomas Hauert
