Swiss Dance Days: Zer-Brech-Lich

Alessandro Schiattarella

Shattering glass, a cup falling, a tear in your jeans. We all know the sound of something breaking or shattering. But what does something sound like when it is saved from breaking? With "Zer-Brech-Lich", choreographer Alessandro Schiattarella creates a piece of music theater that tells of the fragility, fragility and diversity of bodies. On stage, the three disabled performers Victoria Antonova, Alice Giuliani and Laila White explore their own and other people's identities using a variety of elements such as dance, text, sounds and objects. They try out sounds, almost like trying on clothes, transform themselves and search for pop moments. "Zer-Brech-Lich" asks how dealing with one's own fragility can become a political message and encourages new sensual experiences.
