Dance + Artist Talk Nietzsche temporality multiplicity memory

Fr. 12.08.2016   19:30->DOCK ART | DOCK 11, Prenzlauer Berg

Artist talk following 'ASTERIA'

ASTERIA is a choreographic project that questions temporality. The interactive choreographic project is developed in a cycle of alterations that discuss the concept of eternal recurrence from Nietzsche. After the performance we will discuss the understanding of time and its impact in our life.

1 Friedrich Nietzsche “All truth is crooked, time itself is a circle.”

How do we perceive time? Does temporality define our condition? Do we have any form of eternity? Does the body movement perpetuate the infinity of time? Does time has any quality? The audience is invited to discuss about this questions after the dance performance.

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:


 ASTERIA is a choreographic project that questions temporality. The piece is developed through an iterative process of composition using the concept of "eternal" recurrence" - of Nietzsche: with infinite time and a finite number of events, events continue to recur infinitely. According to the philosopher view, the eternal recurrence proposition is a proof of the absurdity of meaningless of life, a proof that no meaning was given to the universe from on high. The recurrence choreographic structure of ASTERIA is developed with a cycle  of alterations of the material. Each ASTERIA elaborates new parameters of variations and comparison that discuss the concept of Eternal recurrence. The mythical Greek figure - Asteria - incarnate s symbol of multiplicity, and embody the natural cycle of life. The piece is composed with an international and multicultural cast. The women soli occurrences interconnect, revealing the potential transformation of the space and creating new perception of temporality.
