The Nerves of Her!

The Nerves of Her!
Copyright: John Hogg

The dancer lies naked on the floor, clad only in light. We can see her heart, the course of her nerves, as if she were being x-rayed. Is it too intimate? This is the theme of the dance performance private spaces. The audience is right in the thick of it as the dancers move through the room; there is no conventional stage. The Cologne dance company Silke Z. / resistdance was invited to bring the piece to the Soweto Theatre in Johannesburg by the Goethe-Institut.
