DUE TO ILLNESS CLAUDIA TOMASI WILL PERFORM INSTEAD OF Lea Moro.
The Solo for Lea is a meeting between Isabelle Schad and Lea Moro. In continuation of Schads choreographic practice around relationships between body, movement, image and (re)presentation, the work attempts to draw a very personal portrait of Lea Moro, dealing with the specificities of her body, its rhythms, its contours, colours and energies. Dissected in parts and reorganised anew, the body is regarded as pure materiality, as a medium of energetic potential and transformation.
The new work unfolds itself in the borderline between visual arts and dance, between performance and installation, between sensual experience and abstraction and is playing with form-aspects of cubism and Picasso's drawings in one dash.
Together Schad and Moro engage in constellations of forming and dis-figuring, in which the body itself becomes the stage: the space, place and matter that is subject of observation.

ISABELLE SCHAD is a dancer and choreographer, studied classical dance and worked with numerous choreographers before she started to develop her own projects in 1999. Her research focuses on the body and its materiality, explores the relationships between body, choreography, (re)presentation, form and experience, and considers physical practice as a place for learning processes, community and political participation. Her projects operate at the interface of dance, performance and visual arts and are shown at festivals, theaters and museums worldwide. As part of Deutscher Tanzpreis 2019, Schad received an honor for outstanding artistic developments in contemporary dance. isabelle-schad.net
