Frédéric Gies

Likes-dealer #2

As a way to counter the logics (or absence of logics) that dictate the often too short life span of dance pieces and a certain sense of powerlessness in relation to the length of that span, Frédéric Gies started building programs of dances as well as new performances that recycle dances from their repertoire. Until now, they have presented this kind of program and performances in their self-organized contexts in Malmö, La Maison de la danse, or in the frame of exhibitions. The program „Likes-dealer #2” navigates between recent dances never presented in Berlin and dances emblematic from their first years in Berlin in the noughties.

Relentless dancing, deviant and voluptuous gestures, down to the millimeter choreographies, uncompromising seriousness and deadpan humor are to be expected.
