Angela Schubot & Robert Steijn
Brothers is a performance of Angela Schubot and Robert Steijn in which they move through different altered mind and body states. From a traditional perspective Brothers could be seen as a dance in limbo, it is all about taking time and details. From a ecological view however Brothers could be a meditative event, in which the dancing body loses slowly the distinction between inside and outside. Brothers deals with the uncultivated und untamed in and around us.
When the forest starts to speak in us, we lose our idea what is to be human. Voices do not refer any longer to the domain of logic and language. Emotions get the status of a daily weather report. Thoughts become monuments of resistance. One question remains: can we stay brothers in the eye of the hurricane, can we stay in dialogue with each other when life reveals the beauty of its unmasked face.
Robert Steijn and Angela Schubot, two independent choreographers and dancers traveled together to Mexico to study the indigenous knowledge about the healing quality of dance. Robert became intrigued how we can stretch the perception of the mind, influenced by working with indigenous shamans and healers. Angela wanted to develop a body state that resonates the inner flow in her body, an interest that was already provoked by her fascia therapy education in Europe, but got even more intensified in the rituals in which they worked with the consciousness of plants.
Angela Schubot is still interested in Solo works based on intensive phases of movement research, which are the core of her collaborations. In 2015 she dedicated to her Solo-Triologie “Körper ohne Macht” in collaboration with Margret Sara Gudjonsdottir (Part 1 „in the blind spot“, sophiensaele ), with Martin Clausen ( Part 2 „the fire from within, Uferstudios/Tanzfabrik) and with herself (Part 3, „Körper ohne Macht“ , Hebbel am Ufer). Schubot is teaching movement research and is coaching a.o. at DOCH/University of Dance and Circus in Stockholm, ImPulsTanz Wien, HZT-Berlin and SMASH Berlin. In 2013 she started her education in fascia-therapy according to the method of Danis Bois and will be working as a healer/ health practitioner soon.
Robert Steijn is one of the reoccuring artists at Skogen. In 2014 we showed the performance Deer Dance and co-produced “Prelude to love”, where Robert worked with the mexican dancer Ricardo Rubio. We are now happy to introduce the work of Angela Schubot in Gothenburg.
The performance is a collaboration between Danscentrum Väst, Konstnärsnämndens Internationella Dansresidens & Skogen.
