Ali Moini: Man anam ke rostam bovad Pahlavan

Ali Moini: Man anam ke rostam bovad Pahlavan
No language

26.05.2024, 20:00, Artist talk in English after the show. A translation into German will be provided via headphones.

In this work, Ali Moini and his life-size puppet interact through a block and tackle. Through karabiners and pulleys connected by a complex system of ropes, the performer and the metal puppet form an interdependent triad. Thus, each dance movement finds its echo in a dismantled and chaotic version in the movements of the metal, initially fleshless puppet. Here the mechanism does not just function as a translator but also as the manipulator of the life between the performer and his double. Even the meaning of the respective roles fade. The efficiency of the development of the actors on stage can vary to the extent that their identities and classifications – between being object and subject, actor and observer, follower and leader and between authenticity and unreliability – get lost.

This event is part of tanzpol 2024.
