ABOUT

Antoinette Helbing is a German dance artist based in Copenhagen. Her choreographic practice is driven by a curiosity towards the physicality and choreography of social life. She looks at social life with inquisitive eyes: Decoding communication - Unfolding physical behavior - Alienating human conditioning. Often the work turns out rather humorous, sometimes provocative and always investigating the human body. Her works are touring both nationally and internationally (Holland, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden, Norway, Greenland, Faroe Islands and the Philippines). In collaboration with the film artist Jan Vesala she created the award winning movies “BANG”, “Re-Dream” and “AFTERLAUGHTER”. Next to her choreographic practice she performs in works from Åben Dans Productions, Andreas Constantinou, Tina Tarpgaard, MYKA and Kitt Johnson. As part of her wide teaching practice she gives professional classes, workshops and she’s a guest teacher in dance and theatre education.

SYNOPSIS

A man and a woman exploring closeness - and the ambiguity of its different aspects. BANG is a dance movie about the difficult search of intimacy in a mechanical and ineffective choreographic structure.
