Godanis Dance Company: The dance must go back to the City theatre

impressed That Jacopo Godani, the Director of the cumbersome to the financial partners of the ensemble named "Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company", can list in his professional career, some of the illustrious Client for a single ballet pieces, only at first glance. It is attested of him, that he can handle a certain level of craftsmanship with the parameters of his art – ballet ensemble, stage space, music, and equipment – premiere is capable of. Also, to his and the Successes of a whole number average of the choreographers to celebrity homes, to read the state of the art. As a virtuoso of this Generation of dancer-athletes, so pale, and the content is weak, many of their younger choreographers are graphs.

In a successful architecture in which Benjamin Millepied, a celebrated Star of the choreography is, not to hang the doors wrong in the fishing and voices of the dimensions. On the business corridors of the world of dance whispers, especially Anglicisms: creative, innovative, progressive, contemporary. Godani, who took over the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company for the 2015/16 season, said on television that he had need to assemble the Company's new requirement, he said, to create the new works that you should develop. All had hoped that he, personally, wanted the successor to William Forsythe's will also receive its Repertoire. This hope was only partly fulfilled. What you see instead, contributes to a very much the impression of motion in the case of more conventional overall. Even the weakest pieces of Forsythe's were more exciting than the best Godani-Premiere.

dance loyal audience

so Now, after five years with Godani, is the dance as as aside done. Into the Bockenheimer Depot, a dance loyal audience comes to the Festspielhaus Hellerau. But to be honest There are not many. Neither the Saxon nor the Hessian auditorium is particularly large. It has become quiet around the dance in Frankfurt. And, after this city was regarded for decades as the epicenter of contemporary dance, earthquake, with William Forsythe as a ballet Director at the Städtische Bühnen in Frankfurt, on the Opera house stage, where the dance belongs.

but What you see now, if you back into the Bockenheimer Depot, after three months, Corona-break for the first Time, where Godani shows the "Performance Installation" with the title of "Selflessness"? In the darkened hall and forty persons were on Sunday afternoon, six to the first inlet, for a stay of approximately twenty-five minutes to a large, rectangular and with a black dance floor area covered should go around.

tape surrounded the playing surface, on the fifteen dancers face the audience in a generous distance from each other are prepared. Uncomfortable the inlet is, because, as people, stepping out of the daylight into a dark room, brakes, quite fast, and stay too close to each other.

In the silent darkness in light showers, the start seated, or to wow the opposite dancers from your masking, goddamn mask and wrap with rugs, blankets and bags, plastic, glitter and tulle and keckern. This is all music that you get, and with movement saves this Installation also. By "Selflessness" is hiding the faces of the performers, wants to be understood the piece as a criticism of the Instagram-Posern of the lock downs. Nice, this is of course a deep thought. But not the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company should occur after three months of absence in front of the audience, that behind it is a surprising concept, a setting which is recognizable?
