“As KooneCompany was chosen by the Goethe Institut Montreal for their Dance Residency Programm in summer 2011, we created the 1 hour length piece: “5 Degrees Of Separation” .
After the good work in Montreal we take the next step and show the premiere of the piece on the 3rd of november in Herne at the Kulturzentrum Herne… The premiere will be part of the well known “Pottporus Festival” initiated by Pottporus e.V. / Renegade Theatre .”


Und hier das ursprüngliche Konzept von uns >>

Tanzlabor Montréal 2011

Five Degrees of Separation

It was a great success / ein großer Erfolg.

“In Montréal entwickelte Kuhnert gemeinsam mit den Tänzern Christian Garmatter, Raphael Hillebrand und Youngung Kim aka B-Boy Jaekwon sowie der kanadischen Tänzerin Marie-Ève Quilicot seine erste für eine breitere Öffentlichkeit bestimmte Choreographie. In „Five Degrees of Separation“ setzt er sich mit Wendepunkten menschlicher Beziehungen auseinander: Wen betrachten wir als Freund, als Liebhaber, als Feind? Und warum? Mechtild Manus, Sprecherin der Jury und Leiterin des Goethe-Instituts in Montréal, überzeugt vor allem Kuhnerts Einsatz „von Video als Ausgangspunkt der Recherche, die Beteiligung des Medienkünstlers Enkidu rankX und die poetische Verbindung von Break Dance und zeitgenössischem Tanz.“

Die Uraufführung ist für den 3. November 2011 in Herne beim Pottporus Festival geplant. (link) >>

What happens after…

…Kooné is en route to Montreal 4 producing our new piece. So this is the occasion to remember our previous collaboration on “And what happens after”. So here is some stuff about it:

in Weimar with Price Mio and Louise Wagner

We went to Weimar and took a very decent part in the background of the opening of the exhibition “Weimar 1919 – Chancen einer Republik“. It was fun, sadly there’s no documentation, so you have to take my word for it 😉
I worked there with Prince Mio and Louise Wagner, they where dancing and I installed an interactive video projection for/on them.
