The new dance piece "Wonderland - Like Nightly Shadows" in Görlitz has succeeded
Boris Michael Gruhl

(...) In Görlitz, the eleven dancers of this new dance piece by Dan Pelleg and Marko E. Weigert discover their own wonderlands and embark on the journeys of their fantasies. Not least, these also refer to their own life journeys, which have brought them from a total of seven nations of different continents to Görlitz (...)

(...) At first there is a petite boy sitting in the corner, close to the audience. On his costume one discovers huge hands that constrict and restrict him, against which he tries in vain to fight with twitching movements. It is as if wonderful fantasies wanted to burst this restricted body, as if a fight was raging in this young man, to which the painful-looking twitches testify (...)

(...) But in this wonderland there are also free, performative moments again and again. Then the dancers get involved in a very personal way, nevertheless guided and directed by Dan Pelleg and Marko E. Weigert, whose concept proves itself in the choreographic collaboration with the whole dance company. When at the end they have all arrived at themselves and have as good as taken off their costumes, then the true wonderland opens, because freely after Joachim Ringelnatz there is wonderland everywhere, be it in the garter of the aunt or somewhere beside (...)
