Past dates

Actually, Patricia Carolin Mai had finished her long-term research on bodies in extreme states.

After HAMONIM with 70 people on stage and KONTROL, which took the bare path of the solo, the Hamburg choreographer's gaze was to be directed this time to the cultural attributions and inscriptions of human bodies.

For the examination of the history of exposed bodies, Patricia Carolin Mai and team chose this time not the stages at Kampnagel, but the museum MARKK - Kulturen und Künste der Welt. Because, when Patrica Carolin Mai is not dancing herself, her artistic interest is directed towards dancing people who are not active in the performing arts and consequently bring other questions to physical mechanisms of representation.

WAHN was to be a group piece with 17 people of all ages from Hamburg: they are still 17, but no longer a group. They are 17 of a very large number of withdrawn bodies that focus their gaze on themselves, no trace of exposed bodies any more. What remains of a human body when it no longer relates to others, no longer moves with them, no longer exposes itself to them? Bodies in extreme states have not been explored to the end, and in Patrica Carolin Mai's new work WAHN, 17 isolated, filmed bodies recall the access and circumstances of past crowds.

The WAHN film will be on view in the MARKK's interstitial space when it reopens.
