Garden of Others

Pascal Sangl

 

Inspired by today's dating apps as a way to find love and life partners 'Garden of Others' shows how intimacy has changed in our relationships following the rise of online profiles and self-portrayal. In a society where physical appearance is so important, we increasingly forget how to connect. We rarely make eye contact. We barely touch. Yet, we judge and swipe away people by the second.

Chiyo

Pascal Sangl

 

Chiyo is a young woman with outstandingly beautiful eyes, a kind heart and ambitious dreams, whose name stands for “a thousand generations”. 

She is a master of transformation, who manages to unlock an entire kingdom of imagination in one's mind with the smallest expression only. Her subtlety is magical and that's what makes the experience of watching so distinctively powerful.

Eine kleine Weisheit

Pascal Sangl

 

'Eine kleine Weisheit' shows a young man in continuous movement. The dominant sound of a ticking clock is building up to a strong force that pushes the young dancer to a point where he can't go on any longer.

The piece comments on today's pressure of optimizing oneself continuously.

The Simple Past

Chronos 

 

'The Simple Past' is a piece based on the idea of nostalgia and the trust that belongs to this feeling. During the piece, we take a plunge into the past; our own as well as the past of the world. Translated to what’s on stage, this results in an easily accessible, diverse performance with a personal edge.
