CocoonDance Company conjures creatures just as bizarre as they are fascinating – with its virtuoso rigour and hybrid energies “Vis Motrix” is a “visual stroke of genius” (Kölnische Rundschau). As if from another world, the dancers move throughout the space and meld into hybrid beings of body and machine, inducing a hypnotic pull in the process. What force, what soul (vis motrix) is propelling these hybrids’ movements? With this production, the company continues to pursue its search for “unimagined” bodies: Transhumanism as a traumatic round dance that touches us on a subconscious level.

CocoonDance was founded in 2000 by choreographer Rafaële Giovanola and dramaturg Rainald Endraß. Since 2004 CocoonDance has been performing and curating in the theaterimballsaal in Bonn, and is now touring five continents. In 2018 the company was invited to the TANZPLATTFORM DEUTSCHLAND with "Momentum".
