About

The team of Körperverstand

Who are we?

To us “Körperverstand” means to combine body and mind on stage, represented by movement (dance) and text. We don’t think of these disciplines as contrary, but complementary. They form an entity on stage. We focus on contemporary dance and expressive writing, the latter sometimes affirming, sometimes antagonizing the movement of our dancers. 

We want to engage with a young audience, therefore we pose questions and conflicts of importance to young adolescents: How do I make the right decision? Where is my place in this world? Where do I want to go and who will be with me?

Because emotion sometimes involves confrontation, we often put those topics with expressive movements, performative skills and emotional force on stage.

Therefore we depend on a third essential element for reaching our audience: music. It supports the message in our performances and steps into a dialogue with text and movement.
