Premiere on the 23. / 25. / 27. / 29. / 31. July, 18:30 & 21:00 Uhr,


Over the past few years, Anne Juren has been extending choreography over a larger research that includes poetic, fantastical, speculative and imaginative dimensions and unfolding it into a Fantasmical Anatomy as real as a piece of bone. In Anatomie, presented 2017 at Impulstanz festival, she expands the imagination of body and its boundaries by proposing a textual landscape, where choreography is placed inside the body of the spectator. Private Anatomy Lessons is a continuation of this research. Pursuing the image of a fragmented and alienated body, the different lessons expose and treat -till their exhaustion and disappearance- different body parts with the dynamics of desire: the tongue, desire for language, the body, desire for symmetry, the sexual organs, desire for obscenity, the mouth and the cannibal desire. The lessons expose and treat different body parts through voice, writing, sensorial embodiment, different body practices and dance materials.
Outreaching our resistances and conventions, the notion of desire will be explored by searching and uncovering other hidden parts of our body.
