A place where nothing is as expected and nothing remains as it was.
In “Greenroom”, four performers around the acrobat and dancer Breno Caetano enter a constantly changing space between wood workshop, physical experimental field and exhibition space. Wood, metal, stone and other materials otherwise degraded to their mere functionality set set the tone. Materiality determines the scenery and turns gravity on its head. Greenroom manifests itself as a place where objects speak their own language and where new agreements take place – including previously unknown laws of gravitation. A place where nothing is as expected and nothing remains as it was.
“Greenroom” is the second part of the trilogy “Human, Hyperobject and Transformation”, and currently the latest work by Overhead Project. The Cologne based company works on the border between contemporary circus and contemporary dance for more than fifteen years, and has received numerous dance awards, most recently the renowned George Tabori award in 2022. Greenroom is a choreographic collaboration between Breno Caetano and Tim Behren, and is a joint creation with composer Simon Bauer and lighting and stage designer Charlotte Ducousso. The research and creation process is dramaturgically accompanied by Johanna Hilari and Matthias Quabbe, the costumes and costume objects are designed by the visual artist Laura Nataf.
