unrestricted exploitation

dance performance
     with a poetic introduction by Björn Klein (Hamburg)

Nominated for the Stuttgart Theater prize 2010

Revised version for four women

unrestricted exploitation is a rapid and at the same time fragile dance play that deals with the (self-) exploitation in the professional context, with the fact that efforts are not valued anymore and with the resulting overexploitation that many people commit against themselves.

The play works solely with physical means in order to correspond to reality: As human beings we do not have a surrogate body, no extra deposit for power. The dancers experience their physical limitations and during the play undergo the different phases of need, expectation, claim, depletion, overspending, break-down, regeneration and the consequences of that chain.

Using different dancing techniques and different qualities of motion the four dancers interact with compositions of Stefan Schmidt (Farang) and Micki Summ, which have been created specifically for this project.
