In ancient Greece and Rome, the “dog days” were believed to be a time of drought, heat, unrest and mania. Enad Marouf employs the dog days as an anticipation of challenging and unpredictable times, where the notion of futurity is radically put into question. In HUNDSTAGE Marouf uses formal elements of ancient Greek theater while continuing his choreographic research on the fragmented nature of memory and fragmentation as a poetic tool. In the formal interplay between movement, music, language and light an ensemble of five dancers goes through a reflection on the human condition through the lens of queer memory, grief and loss.

Following the video installation Time of the Angel (Sophiensæle, 2022) and the performances In My Hand a Word (Sophiensæle, 2022) and And Now It Is Night (Kampnagel, 2023), the winner of the Will Grohmann Prize 2023, Syrian-German performance and video artist Enad Marouf, returns to the Sophiensæle with his new premiere HUNDSTAGE.
