Christoph WinklerEvil Bodies
2011, 5 Dancers
In "Böse Körper" ("Evil Bodies"), Christoph Winkler approaches the interpretation of "evil" characters through dance: In theatre and film, the embodiment of persons and characters through other persons is the norm - it’s the domain of acting. Many actors love to play those "evil” characters because they promise to be challenging and interesting. Dancers seem to be reluctant to loan out their bodies - because you are in fact always this body.
