Recalling the ‘80s-born trend for aerobics, this show merrily re-imagines the iconic sports and exercise regime.

See a carefully choreographed dance performance structured across three distinct acts, placing aerobics’ style and approach in a different context. Rhythm and form are balanced with a tight precision. Putting new kinds of emphasis on the sport in question, new kinds of wonder are found in the movement.
The company Haptic Hide was formed in 2015, with choreographer Paula Rosolen exploring connections between documentary theatre, oral history and dance. Paula Rosolen works with the goal of making visible the inherent dance present in popularculture and mundane activities. These subjects are always studied from a distinct point of view and are usually set in a foreign context.

Supported by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Goethe-Institut London.
