Staatstheater Wiesbaden


for the performance „Habitat“ at Hessischen Staatstheater Wiesbaden.
All abilities, all genders, all ages! Every Body Welcome!

The Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden and choreographer Doris Uhlich are looking for participants* with and without dance experience for the participatory performance „Habitat“. People of all ages (18+), genders and backgrounds with an interest in movement are welcome!
* The Open Call is primarily aimed at non-professional dancers.


As in previous pieces (including MORE THAN NAKED, EVERY BODY ELECTRIC and SEISMIC DANCER), the naked body is central to „Habitat“. „Habitat“ shows the naked body in its strength and fragility. To electronic sounds and techno tracks, the participants celebrate their unity and diversity. As individuals and as a group they simultaneously conquer space in a performance that is captivating, highly energetic, and at times collectively at peace with itself. »Habitat« transcends conventional notions of the body, dance and nudity in a subversive way. It goes beyond conventional ideals of beauty. »Habitat« is a utopian anthem. The series has already been developed and performed in various cities in Europe and will have its next stop in Wiesbaden. Each »Habitat« is unique and is inspired by the architecture and history of the place.
