Stellar Fauna

Produced by HAU Hebbel am Ufer

After a showcase and the premiere of “Rasp Your Soul” in 2017, HAU Hebbel am Ufer presents the new premiere by choreographer and performer Kat Válastur. Divided into two parts, a video installation and a performance, in “Stellar Fauna” – similarly to her last work  – two dancers gradually embody mutant and digital attributes in a poetic way. They repeat a mysterious mantra: “We are waiting for the floods to break free although that would be the end of us.” In a set suggesting an untamed ecosystem, the boundaries between their private and social behaviour are suspended. “Stellar Fauna” is the creation of an uncanny world made by our world. A discourse about bodies in the wilderness of our time.

Due to capacity limitations two performances will take place each day.
