EXCITEMENT OF OUR PEOPLE is a riddle for voice and movement. The performers weave an “abstract narrative” in real-time through fragmentation of common gesture. Attempting to reach the point of abstraction, blurring the line between form and content where new meanings can be assembled. It was premiered in TanzQuartier Wien in February 2016.

By Milli Bitterli. Dance and choreography: Ewelina Guzik, Satu Herrala, Sabina Holzer, Sabile Rasiti, Andrea Stotter. Artistic accompaniment: Jack Hauser. Original soundtrack: Martin Siewert.

In her new piece Can you feel my hard beat?, Milli Bitterli, one of the most important representatives of Austrian dance, choreographs together with her four dancers: a „group choreography“. The starting point of her work is not the form, but the energy and emotion of a movement. How can one appropriate a movement, how can one ‚attract‘ oneself with it, how can one fill it out? Her devotion to movement goes hand in hand with a simultaneous making visible of the body’s work effort in the movement. Actions and tasks are made to dance: A world emerges in which things meet and yet constantly miss….

i persecute (look for) something, in fact, something special.
unfortunately it is so imbricate that sometimes i lose sight of it.
at least i can say meanwhile that i have a sensitiveness that a lot of times works on its own; one could say that it distinguishes itself in a clear notion from the tragic or from the nothing or from the urgency or from the intense sensation, the intense necessity.
i also see this certain something when i hear, for example, what is happening in the songs and in the poetry and in the art of Caetano Veloso; i hear there something, which is very close to the tragic and the generosity, to the pain and the love, to the death and the possibility. i feel close to him and the way he feels: physically, rhythmically, poetically, tragically, happinessly.
that certain wish for happiness, that comprehension of happiness.
all that all together. comprehension of vision. (Vera Mantero)
