Ofelia Jarl Ortega, The Field Calling

April 21, 2024, 6 p.m.

Tanzhaus Zürich
Wasserwerkstrasse 127a
8037 Zürich

In Calling three characters circle each other with equal parts suspicion and intrigue. They have been doing this for some time. Attracted and repelled, their bodies move away and towards each other, sometimes with pleasure and at other times with disgust.

Circling and circling, advancing and retreating, away and towards, closer then farther. They don’t know what is at stake, what it would mean to break the status quo or the rhythm of their patterns. They cannot stay in this limbo for much longer though and soon they will be overwhelmed by their curiosity…

In Calling, the choreographer Ofelia Jarl Ortega examines the power relations within the collective of The Field. The dynamics are revealed in all their complexity through choreographic games and playful scenarios. The performers offer themselves to each other to be used, downtrodden or deified, teased or even pleasured.
