MOMENTUM takes three dancers to the limits of their physical might. Driven by pulsating beats and united by rhythm, speed, light and fervent movement they generate hypnotic energy that seems to connect them with the audience in a joint gradating kinaesthetic experience.

The performance draws from research into parkour, sport that takes barriers in space as new impulse to movement. MOMENTUM plays with fascination borne out of the possibility to disappear in the impulses arising from movement and physical perception of what happens here and now.

RAFAËLE GIOVANOLA was a soloist in Turin before William Forsythe brought her to the Frankfurt Ballet where she spent eight years. She then went on to work with Pavel Mikuláštik’s Choreographical Theatre, to end up in Bonn. She is the founder and artistic director of CocoonDance, and has been working with dramaturge Rainald Endraß since 2000. Ever since 2004, they annually give forty to fifty performances at the free theatre section of the Theater im Ballsaal in Bonn. CocoonDance has established itself as a dance-arts institution with an extensive contact network not merely within the world of arts, but also in the field of cultural education.

The engine behind the 19 years of artistic development at COCOONDANCE is improvisation, a strong dramaturgic approach and high emphasis on incessant teamwork. For years, CocoonDance has been“consistently experimenting with new narrative techniques, artistic methods for contemporary dance“ (Westdeutsche Zeitung). They have toured five continents by now and receivednumerous prizes. In 2018 CocoonDance was invited with MOMENTUM to the platform Germany, the most important biennale of contemporary dance and choreography in Germany. Their practice focuses ont perception as a starting point for change in modern dance. It involves audience not merely in representation of reality, but also of its generation. The ensemble revisits performative space that allows for distance and  thinking, and reaches beyond the narrative space.

Join us for post-performance discussion with the MOMENTUM team.
