"Ambulo ergo sum enriches the process of time analysis initiated since 2013. Renate Graziadei (elected best dancer of the year 2010 by tanz magazine) modulates reality through each of her steps and movements, between symmetry and leitmotiv.

(...)

What they love above all else is space, posture, expression. They develop their own sensory universe.(...)

An authentic performance that denotes by its freshness and its clarity: everything is said, spontaneously."

 

 

Ambulo ergo sum - Ich laufe also bin ich

When does a moment begin and when does it end? What is a process and how does it start? Why might a person stay true to certain attitudes and what compels one to get rid of them?

"Ambulo ergo sum" tells of constant movement, the everyday dance of gestures, of motor skills and their unique quirks. Bizarre, funny, familiar and strange situations unfold into, out of and over one another. Characters play with ease; attitudes, relationships and configurations are pushed to the breaking point until they ebb away, only to repeat themselves or transform.

The room, however, remains anonymous, the costumes are reduced: everywhere and nowhere, that game we call life is being played. A game made up of moments, of small and large gestures, of comings, goings and passings.

The titular "Going" is a metaphor for the act of living itself, for the goings-on, the things that happen before our eyes only to irrevocably turn into the past.
