The works FUR, Rotations and Turning Solo 2 are part of an ongoing series by choreographer Isabelle Schad, in which she moulds rhythms and energies into choreographed experiences. Together with the performers, she creates three very personal portraits. The works invite to dive into a process of timelessness, of closeness and contemplation.

Turning Solo 2 is a continuation of the work Turning Solo. Naïma Ferrés’ whirling practice has been brought into dialogue with Schad’s research around axial and weight shift, around inner movement material and its extension into the world, around energetic fields that characterise oneself and others. In 2020, dancer and choreographer Jasmin İhraç reworks the score and her interpretation made it become its own universe: another person, another portrait. Turning Solo 2 now brings both portraits together for the first time to form a double that can be experienced simultaneously.

FUR is an encounter with the Japanese dancer Aya Toraiwa and her hair, which reaches her knees. The hair covers and clothes, becomes a shelter and a prosthesis: a fur-like outer layer and extension of the body, the energies, the self. The fragile material around the body reveals what seems hidden and acts as a transition between the inner and outer worlds.

In Rotations, the movements of the dancer Claudia Tomasi rotate and accumulate into an energetic flow, creating the illusion that her body is moving by itself. Between precision and loss of control, the choreography creates an astonishing energy.

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

The unfulfilled desire to have children drives couples from Germany and Switzerland abroad. They entrust surrogates in India, the US and Ukraine to deliver their children. These ‘intending parents’ duck legal boundaries and enter unknown moral ground. Flinn Works has undertaken research in all five countries in order to gain a deeper understanding of gestational surrogacy.
