  • »BIG MEN – or My Body in Seven Parts«
  • Tanzperformance An Boekmann / TanzZeit e.V.
  • »BIG MEN – My Body in Seven Parts« is an exuberant roller coaster ride by two dancers through the secret life of their body parts. The choreography’s starting point is Karol Broniatowski’s »Big Man« – a sculpture that exists only as a draft in 93 parts, only partly realized and scattered all over the world. The performance revolves around the question of our body’s memory culture, our eyes, hands, ears, but also our scars, which may be »the place on the body where the soul struggled to escape but was forced back in and the flesh tightly sewn«, as Raymond Federman puts it in his book »My Body in Nine Parts«. The dissolving moment – main source of inspiration for Broniatowski’s works – actually takes place in dance as an art form related to time.
