The latest backsteinhaus production!
›Headless‹ is a parable for the time of general uncertainty, counter-defense and its consequences. It is a positioning exercise and a song against fear. Based on a bad body posture, and the head as a body’s own resistance, the choreographer Nicki Liszta developed together with the dancers this couple dance.
A coproduktion with Theater Rampe
We are invited to the Autorentheatertage in Berlin!
14. June // 8 pm // Deutsches Theater, Berlin
Rubber lays the ground behind the history of globalization: colonialism boomed in the 19th century. The European opera house in Manaus testifies to this. And a small car entrepreneur in Germany, struggling with the crisis, is trying to live on. And the oceans sink in plastic. A climate symphony for a drowning dance ensemble, an exhausted symphony orchestra, two survivors in climatic capsules, and an average white Central European family.
For our next dance production in Theater Rampe, Stuttgart, we are looking for an intern in the stage and costumes department. Our interns will be fully integrated into the international team of dancers, musicians and actors.
Rehearsals: 10.-23.07. & 11.09.-11.10.2017
Shows: 12.-14.10. & 18.-21.10.2017
The latest coproduction of backsteinhaus produktion and Theater Rampe!
With Sibylle Berg’s ›How to sell a murder house – A danced real estate portfolio‹, the director Marie Bues and the choreographer Nicki Liszta imagine drastic explorations of reality: while the city sinks in the civil war, a man saves himself in the vacant house on the Hill as last resort. But even up here the madness of the big city, the crisis of the corporate and financial world and the failure of the white, western, heterosexual man can not be stopped … An abominable evil and at the same time tragic horror trip!

Excerpts from an article from the Yearbook 2015 of ›Tanz – Journal of Ballet, Dance and Performance‹ by Angela Reinhardt:
»Nicki Liszta’s dance hurts. In a very real sense, their dancers and performers throw themselves on the stone floor, popping against walls, hovering over glass flakes. In Stuttgart, where the free scene, in spite of patient parrots through the city, regularly falls next to Ballet Comedy and Gauthier Dance, the choreographer sets a real counterpoint apart from the usual off-locations. …
