In TIM ACY, Hamburg choreographer Antje Pfundtner uses the solo form to exposes herself to the public once more, as she had done in eigenSinn, which gained international recognition in 2003. She challenges the legality of the solo and devotes herself to the question of whether the fundamental intimacy of the solo is purely a strategy to win the audience’s complicity. Antje Pfundtner investigates methods of self representation and puts the readability of her character on the line. Her dancing body constantly creates new connections with the most diverse stories and with a great deal of self-mockery she remembers how much or how little truth a performance can tolerate. A theatrical piece in which aesthetic clichés of contemporary dance form the starting point for a discussion on verbal and physical vocabulary.
