A word is broken down into individual syllables. Or it becomes the chorus of a song about fragility itself. Because anyone who says the word “zerbrechlich“(fragile), is paying it special attention and lending it a particular beauty. With „Zer-brech-lich“, the choreographer Alessandro Schiattarella has created a piece that tells of the diversity of bodies. The three disabled performers Victoria Antonova, Alice Giuliani and Laila White explore their own and other identities. They try out sounds and clothes – looking for the ultimate pop moment. On stage we witness a glamorous concert – or perhaps something else entirely? The piece uses both dance and text, sounds and objects to demonstrate how engaging with one’s own fragility can also become a political statement, a vision of special awareness. It encourages new experiences: we know what something breaking sounds like. But what does something being protected from breaking sound like?
