Claudia de Serpa Soares

What are we like in our raw or natural form? What unites us?

EnKnapGroup is seeking the answers together with Claudia de Serpa Soares in a new performace Surovo (Raw). The choreographer and dancers investigate the notion of emptiness, where every gesture, every move invokes a change that leads to the other and ultimately creates a comunity. Claudia de Serpa Soares was a member of EN-KNAP in the 1990s. In 1999 she joined the dance ensemble of the Schaubünhe Theatre in Berlin under the artistic direction of Sasha Waltz and she still tours occasionally with her productions. However in the last years she created noumerous projects as a choreographer and dancer with other collaborators as well.
