Martin Nachbar’s 2013 solo Animal Dances shows the configurations, effects and forces that emerge when a human figure imitates another species. While the result may at times be concrete and true to nature, Martin Nachbar does not refuse the possibilities of a more abstracting “becoming-animal”. Together with musician Boris Hauf and costume designer Marion Montel, Nachbar invents ritualized animal dances situated in the urban park space.
