Artist talk following 'OH-2'
'OH-2' is a kinetic dance exploring the self in relationship to the number and revealing the contradiction between our race’s capacity for freedom against its most illogical and destructive behaviors. Christine Bonansea invites the audiences to discuss about their impressions after the show.
OH-2 is the 2nd part of OH Project, a choreographic series directed by Christine Bonansea. She creates 3 different performance projects to evok the paradigm of what is to be human. After the Premiere of OnlyHuman (part1) in 2017, she presents a first installation of OH-2 at DOCK11 as a work in progress to expose the artistic research process she’s developing with the series project. The artists will discuss with the audience the understanding of human race. What is to be human? its nature, its history, its evolution. Can we reflects on our acts, how do we perceive our present and question the future as a race?

About the venue
The factory level of Dock 11 in Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg is a rehearsals room, teaching studio and dance stage in one. The stage programme has interdisciplinary supplements such as theatre, performance, literature, music, visual art, film and club art – however the main focal point of every performance is on purely dance elements. Together with its other premises in EDEN***** in Berlin-Pankow, Dock 11 has established itself as an important part of the Berlin dance scene. The unique combination of teaching, rehearsal and stage generates an exciting change of perspectives in both the artists and pupils, as well as among the audience. (source: visitberlin.de)
About the dance performance / installation
OH is a project inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche’s aphoristic volume Human and conceived by the choreographer/performer Christine Bonansea. OnlyHuman -part 1- explored one body as multiple; OH-2 will multiply bodies on stage, using the mass and density with a larger cast of artists in collaboration with visual artists Yoann Trellu, and the composer Nicole Carroll.
The body mass will play with various physical quality and space dynamics; revealing its evolutive movement and transformation.These explorations evoks the paradigm of what is to be human. It displays the tensions that create the contradictory and dramatic conflicting information in our physical life experiences; it exposes the paradox embodiment response of our human condition.
OH-2 performances engaged local community as well as international audience.
The piece will be developed through workshop and art residency programs in Germany, Switzerland and Asia in 2018 and 2019 and premiere in 2019 at DOCK11.
