Garden of Others

Pascal Sangl

 

"You might be one swipe away from your dream partner."

The suggestive tone of today's dating apps inspired me to translate our perfectly crafted profiles and honest relationship difficulties into an artwork of cinematic contemporary dance.

We increasingly forget how to connect. We barely touch. Yet, we judge and swipe away people by the second.

 

feels like: Contemporary Cinderella

Duration: ∼17 minutes

Premiere: 22 | 08 | 2018

Chiyo

Pascal Sangl

 

Chiyo is a young woman with outstandingly beautiful eyes, a kind heart and ambitious dreams.

Her name stands for “a thousand generations”. 

She is a master of transformation and her smallest expression unlocks an entire kingdom of imagination in one's mind. Her subtlety is magical and makes the experience of watching so distinctively powerful.

 

feels like: Howl's Moving Castle, Memoirs of a Geisha

key words: picturesque, intriguing, subtle, transforming

Eine kleine Weisheit

Pascal Sangl

 

'Eine kleine Weisheit' shows a young man in continuous activity. A ticking clock is building up to a strong force that urges the young dancer to a point of absolute exhaustion.

I've made this piece as a comment on today's pressure of constantly optimizing oneself. 

 

feels like: Inception, Awake My Soul

key words: narrative, dramatic, continuous, smart

Duration: ∼10 minutes

Premiere: 10 | 06 | 2017
