Lighting

About the Company

Since 2005 Anna Konjetzky creates dance-pieces and dance installations,where the questioning and organization of the space is always very central.

Her work has been shown for example at Spielart, Dance, Tanzwerkstatt Munich, Unidram Potsdam, Tanztage Regensburg, Festival Danse Balsa Marni Bruxelles, in Kampala, Nairobi, Hanoi, Istanbul, Gent, Salzburg…

At the moment she works as artist-in-residence in the Muffathalle Munich and receives a 3 years support of the city of Munich.  The choreographer and artist Anna Konjetzky studied at the physical theaterschool “Lassaad” (Methode J. Lecoq) in Brussels as well as contemporary dance, and bodyweather in Brussels and Berlin.

About the Piece

“Lighting,” the igniting, torching, kindling, is the title of Anna Konjetzky’s latest dance piece in which the choreographer fixates the audience’s gaze on the bodies of the ten dancers on a bare stage. Ten dancers who form a flurrying, pulsating mass in which the pressure seems to increase constantly. Inspired by the numerous pictures of protest movements round the globe, “Lighting” simply investigates that spark, that moment of collapse, of discharge.

Konjetzky’s dance piece is thus getting progressively more intense and dense; the mass subtly builds more and more power, energy and pressure. A diffuse, uncontrollable process is set in motion and climaxes in the head of the spectators. “The title Lighting is for me double-faced because the object and the subject partake in an active process. If I set something on fire, the action does not stay under my control but creates a ‘burning’ object that continues on its own, independent from my control.” (A. Konjetzky)
