Defying genre and smashing gender clichés, ‘TANZ’ dissects traditional dance and theatre narratives. The performers undergo a rigorous “training in action” ballet, learning how to use their skills in a genre of spectacle to penetrate space and gain knowledge about flying.

‘TANZ’ takes early 19th century romantic ballet as a starting point. Using the frame of a ballet class guided by Beatrice Schoenherr, the first ballerina who danced the Sacre de Printemps naked. This spectacular performance incorporates dizzying acrobatics, muscular women’s bodies and martial art fight scenes.
