Drowning is a contemporary dance piece which evolved around the subject of marine pollution. Our oceans are drowning in plastic with over 51 trillion micro plastic particles in our seas, the consequences for the sea life are alarming. Seven dancers, 6 musicians and a visual artist have been researching and exploring multiple dimensions of the problem to encourage proactivity. 

Reviews:

"The best dance show to see in 2018" The Evening Standard

 

"Choreographer Greta Gauhe has harnessed an array of visual and acoustic elements in Drowning to evoke a sense of underwater marine life, from the eddies and currents of the dancers’ movement to the ripples of water on Boulard’s filmed images matching the arms of the dancers." 

"The suffocating imagery goes to the heart of marine pollution and is thus the true starting point of the work."
Iris and Rosie

"Drowning truly captured the audience".

"An eye-opening exploration of the poignant reality that our seas are dangerously infused with plastic."

"The dancers graced the stage with elegance, effortlessly embodying the fluidity of fish."
Emma Boxall

"The six dancers’ movement is fluid, lingering as if submerged, but it’s just one element of this portrait of an underwater paradise in fall."
Carmel Smith

"Caught up in the flow of waves, the dancers’ numbers grow gradually and the movement swells with a kind of silken complexity for a while. A group of dancers drift, lift and fluidly roll in front of two projections of watery forms, murky colours and simmering light." Exeunt Magazine

"Don't Let the Bedbugs Bite!"

2017 at the Emerge Festival, London and Stratford Art Circus.

Artistic Director: Greta Gauhe

Dancer: Marta Polak, Johanna Merceron, Natalie Sloth Richter

Musician: Andrew Liddell

Don’t Let the Bedbugs Bite! is a contemporary dance piece about childhood memories and how they influence our behaviour and relationships. 

Childhood experience has long-lasting effects on adult well-being. Shifting between past and present, the dancers try to link character traits to childhood memories and experiences. The viewers are invited to look back onto their own past and to connect to the stories on stage. 

Trailer "Be Longing"

2016/17 Nah Dran Festival Berlin and University of the Arts Berlin.

 

Artistic Director: Greta Gauhe

Filmmaker: Ella Funk

Dancer: Romane Petit &. Greta Gauhe

Every home is as individual as the people inhabiting it. Home is a drawing of the Self; a picture of who we believe to be. Feeling at home somewhere is not as easy as building a house. So what is it that makes us feel at home? How can we integrate ourselves into a society and what does it take to make strangers feel welcome? 

The Follow Through Collective approaches these questions by the means of dance and film, thus making personal reflexion tangible for the audience. Whilst the two dancers indulge in a sensible interplay of dance, theatre and music, the viewer is invited to change perspective by means of a multi-channel film projection. Locations and movement complement each other in film sequences, with the recorded dance giving a new meaning to the different settings. 

Trailer "Dis-Appear"

Choreography: Greta Gauhe
Performed in the Bonnie Bird Theatre in London  2015

Follow Through Collective &. Co. researched the topic of illiteracy. Over 785 million men and women cannot, at the present time, read or write. Illiteracy in individuals is a result of various, generally inter-related causes, such as difficult li- ving-conditions, poverty, dropping out of school, lack of books at home, etc., which together create a series of often insurmountable barriers for those concerned. Most people with limited literacy abilities are masters at conceal- ment. With this work the collective aimed to make the problem in our society more understandable by using dance and film to give an insight of how it might feel like to be illiterate.

 

Rendered Human

Choreography and Film by Greta Gauhe and Peter Adams 2015

A video dance, which presents the image in an abstract service of the concept and the aesthetic of the story was prioritized.  Greek ancient sculptures were the initial idea for this film. The collective wanted to show how the athletic body of a greek sculpture is transformed into a human body through movement, touch and emotion.

Narziss und Goldmund

Director: Ella Funk
A pair of twins symbolizes the game between rational end emotional sensation -representing powerful and tender the inner conflict of a mind.
Am I always...?

This Solo is a personal self-refelctionof the dancer.What defines us? What defers us from others and what makes us unique?

These are some of the questions, that influenced the movement study and the creation of the work.
