About us: The interdisciplinary dance productions of Antje Velsinger & Team tackle current socio-political challenges. Their productions are based on extensive research in which they seek encounters with actors from other fields. Velsinger and her team talk to parents and children about how to deal with the climate crisis, interview high-performance athletes about their physical experiences within the neoliberal performance system, or initiate exchanges with people whose bodies fall outside this performance system, such as senior citizens. The stage productions make these experiences tangible in a poetic way. They design temporary escape strategies and fictitious places of retreat and test alternative ways of dealing with the challenges of our time.
