RED - rebellious liberation - passionate desire - RED - powerful mastery of the senses - concentrated dynamics - RED pulsating flow - RED

A room within in a room
Red moving lines
Connections that form shifting structures. Energies change seamlessly.
4 dancers, whose bodies physically transform the red facets and make the ambiguous power of the colour RED visible.

Red is much more than just a colour: RED stands for blood, love, passion, strength and power, but also for danger, rage, destruction and anger. In its new production extRemED, DIN A 13 tanzcompany examines the ambiguity and contrary meanings, the extremely emotional components and the powerful impact of the colour red.

Gerda König, artistic director of the company, has collaborated with choreographer Paolo Fossa to develop a mixed-abled production involving four dancers with normative and non-normative bodies. As usual in DIN A 13 tanzcompany productions, the varied physicality of the dancers and their movement repertoire is choreographed to frame the content.

Contrasts, breaks and the power of the colour red are also revealed in the interaction of the dancers with the stage design, lighting and music. Martina Kock's stage design and Marco Wehrspann's lighting design allow the various facets of the colour RED to find their space and come to expression. With his compositions, Frank Schulte creates worlds of sound that, like the colour red itself, have a direct emotional effect on the audience. This creates an immediate, personally tangible connection to the whole event for each viewer.
