Doris Uhlich: Every Body Electric

dance performance – 60 min – in cooperation with sicht:wechsel Festival


Following her duet Ravemachine, Doris Uhlich is now continuing to work with people with physical disabilities on her concept of ‘Energetic Icons,’ creating individual and collective ‘energy dance forms’ in this company piece. Every body has specific ways of articulating its dynamics and fleshly pleasure. Movements themselves allow the body to become charged, they become a kind of endogenous fuel. Every Body Electric is a simple, but radical invitation to explore potentials through dance, to make them visible, and to delve deep into an archaeology of energy. What other possibilities open up when machines – for example wheelchairs, prostheses, crutches – are regarded and staged as extensions to the body? Personal rhythms, dynamics, beats and bodily characteristics lead to unique dance styles. The explosive power, but also the gentle or forceful poetry of Every Body Electric ultimately rests in how the performers perceive their bodies and how they are perceived.

The various performers work towards opening up their physical potentials. In this process I discover more and more that even a very small movement can be vehement. Normative ideas and concepts of energy and power are destabilised, shaken. Doris Uhlich

“A dancer without legs shows what dance really needs, is and can be.” – Steffen Georgi, Leipziger Volkszeitung, on Performer Adil Embaby in Every Body Electric

“The performance is as ruthless as it is inspiring and hopeful.” — Julya Rabinowich, Der Standard
