We are looking for 3 to 4 performers to join the Berlin team for the rehearsals and presentation of “Æffective Choreography” at Dance House Lefkosia on the 19th of May 2024.
“Æffective Choreography” is a 90 minutes performance that explores intimacy as a practice of being together. A project that plays with the boundaries between sharing and withdrawing, movement and stillness, vulnerability and exposure.

We are looking for performers:

  • who enjoy group work
  • interested in holistic practices
  • available for the rehearsals and show

We would like to share that during the performance, photographs of the performers’ genitals are used on stage. The photos are printed in textile and used solely for the context of the show. The photos will be taken at the beginning of the process in a safe and respectful environment.

André Uerba began his research on rehearsing intimacy during the process of “Burn Time” (2018) and continued through “Fire Starter” (2019/20), “Inviting Moments of Stillness” and “A hole the size of your touch” (2021). “Æffective Choreography” marks a new chapter in the research and was reinforced by his training in bodywork by the Institute for Somatic Learning, Sexuality and Bodywork (ISB Berlin).
