Tamagotchi Life Support, 2017 Installation in Natural History Museum Arad
Hans-Werner Klohe, a representative of experimental dance, explores new connections between body, space, music and voice. His goal and desire is to deconstruct rigid dance and theatrical forms and to connect various levels and design elements to each other.
Kinemorph studies is a long-term performance series possessing a character of research – the coined word kinemorph intends to represent, on the terminological level, the attempt to plumb communication in dance with the help of movement. The first part of this series provides an impression of Klohe’s interdisciplinary work methods, and as a work in progress opens the dialogue with protagonists from other disciplines, like music and design. Specific movement and sound sketches were developed in encounters with various spaces at Solitude. The ephemeral nature of dance and music meets the permanent and established. Transparency and permeability allow several systems of viewing, resulting in a kind of interior landscape.
Hans-Werner Klohe (*1970) studied dance and choreography at the Heinz-Bosl-Stiftung in Munich. As a dancer, he has worked with the likes of Introdans (the Netherlands), Adventures in Motion Pictures/AMP (London, New York), Joachim Schlömer and Sasha Waltz. He has received the danceWEB (Vienna) and SiWiC (Zurich) prizes. Kloh, who produces his own pieces in Berlin, has been a fellow at the Akademie since October 2005.
