The motif of the ‘doppelganger’ is both irritating and fascinating at the same time: his appearance confounds the boundaries between oneself and others. The ‘doppelganger’ questions concepts of similarity and difference, problematizes the subject and its identity. This piece was originally danced as a solo for two women synchronous in two parallel worlds and will now be performed by two male dancers of her current ensemble. »isson« means ‘same’ in Greek and is dedicated to contrasts, reality and illusion, light and shadows, restlessness and peace. Two realities that cannot be separated. Photo Dieter Hartwig
