La Parole errante
pièce pour 4 danseurs • piece for 4 dancers • 50 minutes
Contingencies is exploring the potential, the eventuality and unpredictable event as a condition of being together. Following multiple simultaneous time lines, the piece shifts between amplifying individual positions and materials and moments of gathering, situations in which a group appears. movement is explored in relation to form and as form in transition. How is that form that is constantly in process regulated in terms of fragmentation, rhythm, dynamic and tempi and what is its spacial inscriptions?
Das Zusammentreffen von Menschen beeinflussen
An Kalers neues Gruppenstück "Contingencies" im Leopold-Museum
Von namhaften Veranstaltern immer heißer begehrt sind in letzter Zeit die Stücke der jungen, in Berlin lebenden österreichischen Choreografin An Kaler. Auf diese steigende Nachfrage reagiert die Künstlerin überaus professionell.
Kaler war bereits mit früheren Arbeiten im Brut, imTanzquartier, bei Impulstanz, beim Salzburger Pneu-Festival und in der TBA 21 zu sehen. Ihr neues Gruppenstück Contingencies, erstmals gezeigt im Februar von der Berliner Tanzfabrik, erfährt nun seine Uraufführung im Leopold-Museum (als Kooperation mit dem Tanzquartier Wien) in einer Version für drei Tänzer.
Bei Impulstanz wird im Sommer eine erweiterte Fassung im Kasino am Schwarzenbergplatz präsentiert. Für Performance-Interessierte und Tanzpublikum sind tatsächlich beide Aufführungen gleichermaßen spannend.
Denn Kalers Arbeiten sind ganz gezielt in Beziehung zu den Räumen gesetzt, in denen sie stattfinden - im Bewusstsein, dass jede Art von Zusammentreffen von Menschen selbstverständlich von den Gegebenheiten des jeweiligen Orts beeinflusst wird. Diese Tatsache übersetzt An Kaler in Tanz. Dabei spielen Zufälligkeiten (Kontingenzen) eine wichtige Rolle. Begegnungen lassen sich eben nie wirklich planen. (ploe, DER STANDARD, 2.5.2014)

Untamed Thingliness is a performance based on a curiosity in how objects, language and physical actions interact with each other. By observing how language frames our perception of the different elements the performers enter into a playful game of challenging, transforming, confusing and re-enforcing the sense that is being made, fiddling with the philosophical and poetic potential that arises when imagination, expectations and non-sense collide with that which we understand, know, can see and feel. This performance is absurd and serious, humorous as well as thought provoking.

Exercise for choreography of attention 'Point of no return'
Weld presents the serbian-swedish choreographer Dalija Acin Thelander with her two new works Exercise for choreography of attention 'Point of no return' and Recollections.
Both works delegates the performing to the audience, solely, proposing to them one other experience of choreography. Within these two works Dalija explore and develope choreographic and performative procedures aiming to translate the choreography into means other then dance, bodily expression and representation. Dalija chooses to choreograph the audience's attention and presence using the texts, drawings and spatial dispostifs, within the proposed set-ups which involve audience in reading, listening, gazing and consequently moving. Performative conditions of Exercise for choreography of attention 'Point of no return' and Recollections are subtly addressing the issues such as autonomy, responsibility, contribution and self organization.

'The performance is realised as an exercise in choreographing attention: a series of incidental, behavioural micro-performances induced by reading a book. In both of its assigned roles, the audience, here also positioned as the only performer, remains in constant search of performance. At first, performance emerges here as a temporally suspended and graphically mediated performing of the author in the book itself – drawing qua performance, text qua performance, the visual artist and graphic designer’s ‘dancing’ to the choreographer’s textual propositions and the like. Then, performance comes as initiated by the information regarding performance – the recognition of performing the role of the audience and the collective performance of the given theatrical situation. Finally, the performance also comes into being as the sum of all individual imaginary and perceptual responses from the audience to the impulses issuing from the book – as a mental performance of a visual-textual template.
In this exercise, attention is directed primarily at the book as an unexpected interface of partaking in a theatrical situation. The book, in this case a workbook, is neither the performer, nor an instruction manual, but a sort of inductor or performance regulator. Depending on the book’s contents and form, the performance emerges by means of interacting with it, through the procedurality of reading. Typically, reading a book is an intimate and individual rather than a public act; nonetheless, reading one and the same book brings its readers together – notwithstanding the huge temporal and spatial distances separating them – into a kind of community. In this case, a book is introduced into public space, that is, it is as though the book qua performance interface were becoming public space. The private act of consuming a book becomes an act of community in public – theatre.'

Recollections is a choreographed environment created for you to mediate with and share with others. It proposes an experience which you are invited to carry out. It entrusts you with a text to follow, to perform and embody it – however you choose to understand performing and embodiment. It opens multiple spaces for wandering between visible and invisible, private and public, comfort and complaisance. It invites you to negotiate, to drift away or enforce, to take up with or abandon. Recollections designs unrestrained zone. It addressed the responsibility and welcomes the uncertainty and chance. Your interpretation of what is proposed to you, your choices and your involvement will inevitably influence your experience and co-create the experience of other/s.
Recollections is not about fulfillment. It is contemplation and mediation.
Recollections is a choreography. But it is also an opportunity to recollect the self, the other, space, time and... everything else in-between.
