After the success of the site-specific inclusive production Exploring Borders shown at the EveryBody Festival 2021, Curtis & Co. and EveryBody gather forces to present the premiere of Exploring Borders – moving on, a sequel, danced by an extended group of performers, with and without disability. Moving into and inhabiting the theatre space of the Tafelhalle Nuremberg they explore its spatial limits. 5 performers, 7 nationalities, aged between 25 and 58: what physical, psychological, geographical, social and political borders have confronted the four protagonists of Exploring Borders in their lives? Which ones could they overcome and where did they fail? After the events of the last three years the themes of borders, proximity and distance have become even more topical. Borders are built up and torn down. Contemporary dance meets streetdance, precise acrobatic skills come face to face with emotions pushed to the limit.
The mixed-abled ensemble explore their own borders and those of the performance space. Moving like animals defending their territory, or like human beings, exposing themselves to the complexities of social interaction and relationships, the performers react to the (un)limited space and inspire constantly changing associations and narratives.
EveryBody’s aim is to make dance and theatre accessible for everyone. Two performances, 21st October 2022 and 3rd February 2023, are being offered along the lines of a relaxed performance. A touch tour introduction, German sign language translation and audio description will be available to audience members.
