ohne nix – Luke & Dom

Leo Model, Wednesday Dacember 5th, 8pm

With sheer delight in play and equipped with a pinch of self-irony, two talking heads introduce their concept before inviting their bodies to join them. Out of nothing, Luke Baio and Dominik Grünbühel create a bombastic, megalomaniacal show that makes your body vibrate – yet always ready for an elegant fail.
The subjects addressed in this compact-compatible performance by the two dancers draw from their respective biographies and experiences in the field of contemporary dance: recipes for success, naked skin as projection space for every form of fantasy imaginable and well-proven elements of theater are brought together to create a choreography that crosses the borders of artistic fields and forms of artistic expression.
