Edan Gorlicki

Alexander Ehhalt (c)

Edan Gorlicki is the choreographer and artistic director of INTER-ACTIONS in Heidelberg, Germany. He additionally works as a freelance choreographer, mentor, movement researcher and dance-activist. He serves as a member of the board of TanzSzene BW and he is a member of FLUX e.V. and the Freier Theaterverein Heidelberg.

The philosophy of his artistic practice is based on searching the self within its surroundings. Layered, complex and thought provoking, my work aims to explore social, psychological and emotional realms. His work includes stage works inspired by numerous subjects such as decision making, gender identity, privilege, democracy, communication, power and control, sexuality, fantasy, stress, addictions, belonging and perceptions. He recently completed a trilogy of 3 productions inspired by body journeys on the theme of individual, collective and cross-generational relationships with trauma.

MOLECULAR SCARS

Chapter III

What is the present made of? What narratives, assumptions, exaggerations, secrets and confusions does it hold or carry?
Working with performers of different generations, MOLECULAR SCARS attempts to get a little closer to this puzzle. The piece tells a story about finding meaning in the past and questions how the future can be influenced or shaped. With this production INTER-ACTIONS ends a three-year series, inspired by themes of individual, collective and cross generational experiences with trauma.

RECOVER

chapter II

What do we all need, precisely at this moment? Choreographer Edan Gorlicki, together with five performers explore this question live using choreographic methods developed especially for RE-COVER. This 5 hour durational performance makes personal developments and processes visible, explores states and gives us all time. RE-COVER is designed as a retreat for experiencing, observing and reflecting, revealing a collective organic dramaturgy that emerges anew every performance. RE-COVER also explores the relationship between audience and performers – as both witnesses and bearers of stories. How must this relationship be shaped so that narratives have space to unfold and be re-understood?

IMPACT

chapter I

Drei Jahre lang beleuchten Edan Gorlicki und sein Team den Umgang unserer Gesellschaft mit traumatischen Erlebnissen. In IMPACT, dem ersten Teil der Trilogie, begeben sich fünf Tänzer*innen in das Epizentrum des Geschehens. Ohne ein Ereignis bloß nachzuerzählen, erforscht das Stück wie der Körper reagiert, wenn aus dem Nichts die Katastrophe geschieht: Wie begreifen Menschen die plötzliche Veränderung und wie antworten sie darauf? Welche Mechanismen führen zu Flucht, Abwehr oder Starre? Wie verändert sich das Erleben von Zeit, wenn der Körper die Kontrolle übernimmt? Wie frei ist der Mensch, darauf zu reagieren?

WHAT DO WE DO

We all make decisions on a daily basis: specifically up to 20,000 a day, 140,000 a week, 7,300,000 a year. Many of them are made unconsciously, from our gut. Others we choose wisely. Often they are small decisions, sometimes big ones – ranging from public life, politics or private lives. In WHAT DO WE DO, choreographer Edan Gorlicki together with four performers explore the question of how decisions work and what strategies are involved. Mirroring democracy, the audience has the choice, as they repeatedly vote and decide on what scenes are performed and the course of the entire piece.

SEXLESS BABE

SEXLESS BABE is a sensitive excursion to the undefined identity and a physical study of a genderless body. taking place in a boxing-rink setting and amid the energy of a rock concert combined with underground clubbing mystery, this performance takes the audience on a voyeuristic expedition of attempting to understand the complex world of the non-binary self.
