is a laborgras commissioned work for Walk-Tanztheater VLBG/AUstria

„How many more times…“ investigates the many layers of time and questions the human desire for endlessness. How many more times? Which memories remain?

In collaboration with five women of different generations, Renate Graziadei explores the topics of aging, memories, everyday moments and habits, manifested by the dancer’s individual perspectives. The dancer’s interplay constantly creates new situations and moments, corresponding to the women’s personal histories. Layer by layer we get inside into their individual lives, as well as into shared stories and questions.

Alina Rosalie Amman’s playful stage design supports these personal stories. Together with Renate Graziadei she created a highly contrasting microcosm of perspectives, opening up an imaginative space for the performance. The music by Martin E. Greil generates a sonor landscape that opens up to the presence of the outside world, while simultaneously offering the possibility to dive into the resonance of the invented ‘playground’.

„How many more times…“ consists of multiple processes of aging. Steps of life melt into one another, passing from one person to the next, ending in a common dance that opens up for a shared narrative. The audience is offered a multitude of personal inspirations to search for one’s own experiences and wishes.
