FRI 20.4.18 Cindy Van Acker (CH) «Silence je danse» (Tanzfestival STEPS)
In «more than naked», twenty naked dancers make their flesh wiggle, wobble and flap. As the movement unfolds, Doris Uhlich stands on stage, DJing under the motto: Let´s party our body! The show «more than naked» manages to bring to the stage nakedness free of ideology and provocation. One neither feels embarrassed nor like a voyeur. The body is not degraded to a fetish or an object, and carnality is not metaphorically or poetically ideologised but understood materially, and in the process the body is shown in all its mass and power but also in its fragility.
Doris Uhlich, born 1977 in Upper Austria, Degree in „Paedagogy for Contemporary Dance“ / Conservatory of Vienna, member of theatercombinat 2002-2009, own projects since 2006, "Remarkable Emerging Choreographer“ in the Yearbook of Ballettanz 2008, dance prize of bm:ukk (ministery of education, art and culture) for "SPITZE" 2008, "Dancer Of The Year" in the journal "tanz" 2011 and 2015, "award outstanding artist 2013" in the category performing arts of bm:ukk (ministery of education, art and culture).
