Natur Schau Spiel
What if our body could be part of a natural spectacle?
To find answers to this question choreographer Jan Möllmer and circus artist/stage designer Baptiste Bersoux create a garden made of building materials and earth. In an interplay with dancer Narumi Saso the garden creates images of rain, storms, rivers, volcanic eruptions and more.
The performers become triggers and results to natural situations and feel out the connections that are created between each other.

Natur Schau Spiel was shared for the first time as a work-in-progress at the Knopffabrik Wuppertal.
This site-specific work can be shown in urban and industrial spaces and adapted to various places. Its setting is operated by only four lights and a bluetooth speaker so that it can easily be moved to non-performative areas.
