Fabrice Mazliah/MAMAZA/MichaelDouglas Kollektiv


Telling Stories

Mousonturm Saal


In his extraordinary choreographies, Fabrice Mazliah – co-founder of the collective MAMAZA and former Forsythe dancer – sets thoughts in motion. He is above all interested in transgressing boundaries and in the highly dynamic interactions that always arise when people attempt to make sense of contradictory sensations. In Telling Stories, he now challenges the inventiveness of our sense of perception in collaboration with dancers of the Cologne-based MichaelDouglas Kollektiv. Bodies, space and actions are in constant motion and transformation, interweaving in an artful narrative thread into a complex communicative system, in which the audience play just as important a role as the dancers themselves.
