In his new site-specific dance project WERT, the choreographer Massimo Gerardi concentrates on the juxtaposition of having and being (E. Fromm), as well as establishing a connection to the dichotomy of athlete and artist.
The ‘athlete’ is represented by dynamic, expansive movements, which is predominantly present on stairwells and staircases. Here the urge for self-representation, performance, progress, competition, but also failure is visible. By contrast, stair landings and flat spaces, offer an opportunity for self-recognition, personal questioning and above all, the development of relationship between the two performers. Here the focus is on the ‘artist’.
In both situations, the body movement is shaped by the architecture of the performance venue. WERT has been created, adapted and filmed at three locations: the Mathematikum in Giessen, the European Centre of the Arts-Hellerau, Dresden and the Museum der Moderne Salzburg.
This streaming is the version filmed in Salzburg (Austria).
