The performance Commitment by choreographers Ana Laura Lozza & Bárbara Hang explores states of commitment and dedication to make them visible as deeply rooted, yet inherently fragile experiences. Anchoring their work to the materiality of words and sounds, the choreographers move on the playing field between the familiar and the unfamiliar, between given and new paths, and between seemingly universal perspectives and intimate angles.
Two generations of performers, Barbara Schmidt-Rohr and Ton Bogataj, together with musician Jana Sotzko, question memories, associations and meanings and create a choreography of stories and songs that lead them into a future of intentional unknowing. What forms manifest when certainty gives way to groping, unknown movement?
