Collective


The TanzKollektivBremen (TKB) sees itself as a platform for contemporary dance. The dancers and choreographers Magali Sander Fett and Neus Ledesma Vidal, as well as the dramaturg Judith Strodtkötter and the cultural manager Ulrike Osten are currently involved in the collective.

TKB was founded in 2013 by Tomas Bünger, Magali Sander Fett and Miroslaw Żydowicz. Based on the performers' own very different biographies, the work of the TKB is always about the dance confrontation with reality and the relevance and forms of expression of the body in society. In joint artistic research, new performative formats are created on stage, but also in completely different spaces. From 2020 to 2022, the dancers were housemates in the Schwankhalle Bremen. With this model, the Schwankhalle Bremen intensified and consolidated its cooperation with the TKB.

Cooperations


TKB seeks contact with other arts and milieus and regularly collaborates with other artists and groups. As guests, the musicians and sound designers Riccardo Castagnola and Jonas Wiese, as well as the stage designer and video artist Till Botterweck (URBANSCREEN).

DISTANCE DISTANCE CANVAS CANVAS


Performance Installation

60 minutes, premiere 14.09.2023 at Städtischen Galerie Bremen

By: Neus Ledesma Vidal & Jorge Julve


The piece is the result of a month-long exchange between choreographer Neus Ledesma Vidal (Bremen) and visual artist Jorge Julve (València). The performance installation is a guest at the Städtische Galerie: large-format paintings meet dancing bodies and are in continuous conversation. They transform and manipulate each other. The proximity between art and audience can take up space. Textures and structures become figurative images. This shared space becomes a stage for the pleasure of playing with ever-changing landscapes.

The framework for the performance is the exhibition DAS BLEIBT, at the Städtische Galerie Bremen. Individual pieces from it served as the starting point for the artistic dialogue.

Körperschau


Dance performance

60 minutes, premiere 30.11.2022 at Städtische Galerie Bremen

By: Magali Sander Fett


In the form of a dance intervention, TanzKollektivBremen relates to works in the exhibition "CKD - Completely knocked down (Recife Bremen Connection)" at the Städtische Galerie. In the performance, the theme of the exhibition, disassembly of a product into its individual parts, is developed further in dance. Complex movements are fragmented and reassembled. In the interplay of music, dance and video, grotesque forms and new body creatures emerge.

Another Body


Dance performance

60 minutes, premiere 16.12.21 at Schwankhalle Bremen

By and with: Tomas Bünger, Riccardo Castagnola, Magali Sander Fett


The dance dialogues of 'Dialogue of Bodies' about the cultural imprinting of bodies are expanded to include the perspectives of a guest performer and a doctor whose preoccupation with dance usually takes place more behind the scenes.In 'Ein Tanzexemplar' - a duet about injuries and crossing borders - Magali Sander Fett meets the dance doctor Eileen Wanke. In the performance 'Dein Körper' (Your Body), Tom Bünger and the contemporary composer Riccardo Castagnola deal with power, manipulation and the desire for closeness. Both pieces are connected by the question of when one's own body becomes an object.

Dance performance

50 minutes, premiere 09.07.2021
ATS Buntentor, Bremen

By: Magali Sander


Five dancers explore the world of football through artistic means. They want to learn what they cannot: Play football. What does the "choreography" on the field look like? What are rules and orders? What are the rituals before the game? How do the bodies of ballerinas and footballers differ? A performance on the football field emerges from the field research.

2D – dramatic dimensions


Media dance performance

50 minutes, premiere 19.10.2019, Kunsthalle Bremen

By: Magali Sander Fett und Till Botterweck URBANSCREEN


ICONS that visitors have previously viewed in the exhibition are projected into a space. The four performers and the specially developed sound add another spatial and temporal dimension to the projections. As a result, viewers experience a moving worship in all directions through body, sound, language, form and abstraction. The artworks thus come alive and are expanded by new, fascinating facets for the audience.

Dialog der Körper


65 minutes, premiere 21.6.2019, Schwankhalle Bremen

By: Magali Sander Fett and Mirosław Żydowicz


"Dialog der Körper" explores the cultural imprint of bodies in two duets. "Pas des deux" takes on the motif of the same name from classical ballet: what does the "step for two" look like as a contemporary couple dance that reserves all eventualities? "One" is inspired by Shakespeare's love sonnets and the symptoms of Huntington's disease. How do desire and jealousy come together with the involuntary, uncoordinated movements of the so-called St. Vitus dance?

31 Skizzen


Premiere 11.10.2018, Theater Bremen

By: Magali Sander Fett


In 1968 Johann Kresnik founded his Choreographic Theater at the Theater Bremen. 50 years later, TanzKollektivBremen explores the rather unknown graphic work of the choreographer and artist Kresnik. His sketches were the origin of his productions, his first and most original thoughts. In Thirty-One Sketches, five dancers establish a personal relationship with the images and use them like a foil. Magali Sander Fett's choreography is a performative examination of power relations and polarities. Experiences, feelings, but also the origin and generation of the dancers involved form a new interpretation of the drawings from today's perspective.

Fremd.Sein


Premiere 15.09.2017, Schwankhalle Bremen

By: Tomas Bünger


What does dance have to do with me standing here today? For many dancers migration is a professional principle of life, they are used to working with all kinds of people in all kinds of places. In the most diverse places. Being a stranger is part of everyday life. For many other people leaving their home country is the last way out of their misery. In FREMD.SEIN, a contemporary dancer from Brazil with german roots, an urban dancer from a syrian family and a breakdancer who fled from Gambia in 2014 share personal stories and explore their own life paths.

ResonanzKörper


Premiere 18.03.2017, Schwankhalle Bremen

By: Tomas Bünger, Magali Sander Fett, Kiri Haardt


Every day we expose ourselves to the environment - and deal with it. We are resonant bodies because we relate to each other. What does the world of one trigger in another one's world? And how much resonance do I allow? Three contemporary dancers/choreographers have been in dialogue with three new music composers over a period of months. The first fragments of their own artistic genre emerged, improvisations enriched each other's worlds, and the three dialogues are now combined in a performative act that gives sound and body equal space.

And now with Music


60 minutes, premiere 12.01.2017, Schwankhalle Bremen

By: Magali Sander Fett


Contemporary dance and dance sport? How do they fit together? Fascinated by a completely different dance world, Tomas Bünger and Magali Sander Fett explore the latin formation the Grün-Gold-Club Bremen. In a self-experiment they let two Bremen-based traditions collide, investigate dance and talk about the dances and in conversation for commonalities of the seemingly so different milieus. What is it, that defines dance styles and their communities? According to which rules and codes does the dance function? How does the group work and where is the individual? 'AND NOW WITH MUSIC' is bursting with humor, adrenaline, drama, sweat and pain! Because: The show must go on!

Schweres Wasser


60 minutes, premiere 04.12.2015 Schwankhalle Bremen

By / with: Magali Sander Fett / Frauke Scharf


Can you dance water? And how can a narrative be translated into movement? Inspired by the stories of the author John von Düffel the dancers deal with water in its most diverse manifestations: Rivers, sea, rain, fog, ice. Together they dive along the texts into associations rich in images, physical sensations and mental states: "I'm standing on the beach, looking at the the winter-smooth water. Where it rests, where it stirs. The ice is quite tender and vulnerable, like the skin on a cooled down milk... soft ice water fluff." (John von Düffel, free translation of "Wassererzählung", DuMont: Cologne, 2014)
