What is our project about?

The cie. bufam/andreavgunten deals with the question: «who am I?» and tries to find the answer by exploring their bodies in depth. Is our own existence authenthic, artifical, independent or heteronomous? How much do others influence my being? To what extend am I my own? Or do I want to be someone else? The research process requires intense soul-searching and allows dancers and choreographer alike to develop unique, personal, irreplaceable stories.

An intrinsic part of this process is a musician who composed individual signature sounds for every dancer’s personality and body language. These sounds will be played live on stage and guide the dancers through their performance.
