A Hicks&Bühler Production
In DER KLUMPEN, five dancers and a musician are in a landscape with no end and no beginning. Piling, nesting, clumping, clustering, and rooting, they are drawn into a state of becoming. Both thing and human, the clump is the emergence of the individual from the crowd, the delight of disorientation, and the challenge of collaboration. It is a pile of parts, a ‘worlding’ of relation, and a metaphor for collective action. Meanwhile… this organization of bodies is a real time situation of struggle, of interaction, and of literally finding one’s feet.
