Sway

An invitation to look on the bright side of heavy things

Sway revolves around the common movement of swaying – the carefree energy and motion of tipping in and out of balance. In this rhythmical and adventurous solo, Andreas Hannes aims to sway between landscapes, mythical stories, musical timelines and invented histories. We witness the protagonist transiting through environments by a constant and sensual re-configuration of his body and the space.

Scenes include a dance for re-invented heritage, an ode to staying with your pain, and the creation and dissolution of rhythmical creatures that carry energies of power, fragility, inevitability and absurdity. The stories of Hermes and Icarus merge in a transitory scene that grapples to deliver a message, while the myth of Sisyphus is used notas a mechanical force to continue but as a necessary suspension to the relentless reformulation and ambition ofthe protagonist to arrive within his body.

In Sway, he continues with his warping practice and invites audiences into a peripheral entertainment that offers space for reflection and connection to a light-hearted view of dealing with ones struggles and understanding of progress.

 

Andreas Hannes became known with his practice of continuous skipping (huppelen) in his pieces ‘The City’ and ‘Tremble’. He received the Moving Forward Trajectory 2018, the Young Artsupport Amsterdam 2019 and the BNG DansPrijs 2020. Inspired by the skipping practice, Andreas developed a new method of warping, where the body is emerged in aerodynamic landscapes. He created pieces such as ‘Reverberated Emissions’ with the ensemble of ICK Dans Amsterdam and ‘Warping Soul’ with the dancers of Conny Janssen Danst. In 2022, he was selected as one of the twenty most promising young artists in Europe in Aerowaves 22.
