Where can a group drift?
In »FIVE« five dancers investigate different arrangements, dynamics and poses within a group. They move between geometric formations, swarm behavior, band poses and chaos, work with movement motifs of packs and packs and repeatedly question the relationship between individual and group. They rock each other up, and are on the lookout for tipping moments in which the group body goes out of shape and tips over into the destructive.


Since 2014 Raisa Kröger, Florian Bücking and Johanna Withelm have been working together as a permanent group under the label bücking&kröger. Their work is characterized by its clear focus on the body, finely crafted movement material and the states that accompany movements. The working method and aesthetic research is strongly influenced by various somatic techniques such as Body Mind Centering, Feldenkrais and Authentic Movement. Numerous short pieces, full-length performances, site-specific productions as well as video works have been created. After many duets in recent years, the ensemble piece »FIVE« is an attempt to extend her dance/choreographic practice by working with multiple dancers and exploring the sculptural possibilities of a group body.
