Rabbit Hole (World Premiere)
The Munich choreographer Moritz Ostruschnjak has created a world premiere performance of his piece Rabbit Hole that leads us down into the dark depths of a fantastic and digital realm, through tunnels, intersections, aberrations, final fantasies, with no end in sight. It seduces through algorithmics, entering into an eerie backwards motion, getting lost in the depths of the internet, of the wonderland, where the impossible is possible and morals are cancelled. Have we long since arrived at a time where all of the rules have been turned upside down and simply can be overwritten, beguiled by bittersweet media strategies and ideological echo chambers? And the fleshy movements in particular are what appear so strangely different and simultaneously so familiar to us, which mutate from grotesque deconstructed scenes into a dance maelstrom and sweeps away everything that was. A language that unfolds its own personal beauty from the very first second.
Coming from his genuine interest in the complex interplay between humans and digitality, in his works Ostruschnjak poses the question of who we are at this very second, and while he does this, he inserts his finger into the wound (and the miracle). Originally from the sprayer and breakdance scene, Moritz Ostruschnjak received his dance training in Munich and in Lausanne under Maurice Béjart. He has been living and working as a choreographer in Munich since 2013, and he traveled with works such as AUTOPLAY, TANZANWEISUNGEN, YESTER:NOW, and TERMINAL BEACH to numerous international festivals and hewas awarded the sponsorship prize the City of Munich in 2020. In 2022 he opened the German Dance Platform festival in Berlin with TANZANWEISUNGEN.
