Artist talk following 'OnlyHuman'

Christine Bonansea explores various physical states and images that suggest the paradigm of what is to be human; an evocation of the human emancipation and beauty to its absurd and destructive behaviors.

OnlyHuman is a solo inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche’s aphoristic volume Human, All Too Human. „The piece reflects a desire to question my relationship to the world as a human being using artistic practices“, says Christine Bonansea. „How do I perceive myself, my humanity? What is the human being condition and quality? How do I impact and connect with the rest of the world? What are the ambitions and limitations of the race? How the human race evolves?“ Audiences are invited to discuss with Christine Bonansea.

About the venue

Dock 11

The factory level of Dock 11 in Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg is a rehearsals room, teaching studio and dance stage in one. The stage programme has interdisciplinary supplements such as theatre, performance, literature, music, visual art, film and club art – however the main focal point of every performance is on purely dance elements. Together with its other premises in EDEN***** in Berlin-Pankow, Dock 11 has established itself as an important part of the Berlin dance scene. The unique combination of teaching, rehearsal and stage generates an exciting change of perspectives in both the artists and pupils, as well as among the audience.  (source:



About the dance performance


OnlyHuman is a solo created by Christine Bonansea in collaboration with the music composer Nicole Carroll, the visual artists Robert Flynt and Yoann Trellu. Inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche’s aphoristic volume Human, All Too Human, this highly kinetic and virtuosic dance is a meditation on bodily images and stereotypes of self in the context of the environment – geography, emotions, social structure. Different physical modes of embodiment interact with the immediate space, generating the choreography as from a series of selves. The movements create the contexts, shifting the focus, perspective and dimensionalities within the internal and cohesiveness of the dance. The choreography emphasizes systemic modes of constructed experience and the paradoxes built into them.
