I am who I am who I am / Luzern theater /dance festival steps @ dance festival steps
Apr 23 @ 19:30 – 21:00

Three women have created the dance pieces for this program. They are very different. Yet the topic is always the same: Who am I really? The dance company comes from Lucerne and has been very successful for the past ten years
three strong personalities question the meaning of identity with virtuosity and humor.

British choreographer Carolin Finn takes a wild ride through fantasy and reality in search for the uniqueness in each and everyone of us. Ella Rothschild from Israel questions how one’s own identity changes in a group context. Swiss artist Jasmine Morand focuses on our visual perception, which is always subjective and never without a personal filter. How much can we really trust our perception, after all? «I am who I am who I am» – an intelligent, humorous and decidedly female view of the world!

Three premieres by three women packed into one production: a rarity in itself. The title of the production opening the 17th edition of Migros Culture Percentage Dance Festival Steps says it all: «I am who I am who I am». Kathleen McNurney, director of TLT since 2009, has formed an ensemble over the years which compares favorably with significantly bigger companies worldwide. In close collaboration with Steps, she has chosen three young guest choreographers, thus connecting the ensemble of TLT with the independent scene. The choreographers were all faced with the same task: to create a piece on the theme «identity». The result: cosmopolitan, individual and anything but identical.

לדעתי הפה מיותר
פרפורמנס מחול ומוסיקה / מפגש בין גרשון וייסרפירר ואלה רוטשילד

אנשים בוחרים להיות יחדיו מתוך מה שאנחנו מכנים אהבה אם כי הרבה פעמים זו הנחמה שבשותפות הגורל. הבחירה הזו יוצרת יחסים שנעים בין אהבה, שנאה, פחד וכל קשת הרגשות שבניהם. זהו המרחב למופע לדעתי הפה מיותר שבו המפגש בין מוסיקה ומחול יוצר שפה יחודית שדרכה מתאפשר מבט חטוף אל תוך עולם מופלא, קודר, הומוריסטי, ומלא סתירות של זוגיות אחת בעיר הגדולה.
לדעתי הפה מיותר יוצר תמונה של זוגיות המשוועת לרגע של שלווה אך מוצאת עצמה בסבך של תנועה וצליל.

IMO the mouth is redundant

Dance and Music Performance / An encounter between Gershon Waiserfirer and Ella Rothschild

People choose to be together because of what we call love, though often it is the consolation of sharing a fate.
This choice creates relationships that range from love, hate, fear, and the whole spectrum of emotions in between.
This is the ground for the creation IMO the mouth is redundant, where the encounter of music and dance creates a unique language through which one can glimpse into a wondrous and humorous world, full of contradictions, of one od relationship.
IMO the mouth is redundant creates a picture of a relationship that cries out for a moment of peace but finds itself tangled in games of movement and sound.
