MOMENTUM makes a connection between the dancers and the audience through the palpable feeling of movement in a shared space. The dancers and the audience alike absorb the evolving kinetic energy just like the exhaustion, which become the driving elements of the performance.

Only the rhythm and speed unite the movements in a structural dimension. The pure physical, sweat-inducing choreography and the fusion of light and sound are generating a hypnotic energy.

Nomination "Dancer of the Year" in the critics' poll of the specialist journal “tanz” 2018 by Dorion Weickmann (Süddeutsche Zeitung, Jahrbuch tanz 2018

MOMENTUM is a great and unconventional piece which opens up new spaces of thought and movement, as is typical for the experimental productions of Rafaële Giovanola and dramaturge Rainald Endraß, the founders of the Bonn Cocoondance Company. And thus creating a special connection between the dancers and the audience. The spectators - and not just those sitting at the edge of the stage - were increasingly drawn into the choreography, captivated by the three dancers, who enthralled the audience with their irrepressible energy and artistic ability.
