Isabelle Schad’s Collective Jumps at GarageMCA in Moscow

Isabelle’s astonishing Collective Jumps, which premiered at HAU end-2014 (really?! So long ago!) and has since been restaged multiple times on variously sized groups elsewhere in Germany, in Poland, France, pretty sure other places too, is right now getting its legs up in Moscow at GarageMCA. So, you’re in Moscow on Friday evening, June 3rd, obviously you’re going to go and see it.

The SOTA@GARAGE performance festival opens with a performance-installation by German choreographer Isabelle Schad and artist Laurent Goldring.

In their performance Collective Jumps—which first took place on November 28, 2014 at the HAU Hebbel am Ufer theater center in Berlin—Schad and Goldring explore the phenomenon of collective actions. Turning to unifying contemporary dance practices that reject representation, they explore the relationship between freedom and form, and examine the actions of a collective body as a form of resistance.

Together with SOTA@GARAGE students, Schad and Goldring will create a two-hour-long performance-installation in Garage’s space.

The SOTA@GARAGE performance festival will take place at Garage and on Garage Square from June 3 to June 5.
