Constanza macras / dorkypark
i am with you
I AM WITH YOU is a one-hour long performance made of solos, duos and trios from former group pieces by Constanza Macras.
Created in close collaboration and dialogue with members of her own company and guest performers, I AM WITH YOU offers the audience with an one-of-a-kind insight into the very process of creation and with an intimate overview over the amazing number of unalike creations that this internationally renowned Berlin artist has produced over the last years.
Constanza Macras gets in dialogue with her performers and shows the diary of a creative process. Following the topic of reconstruction, fragmentation of the menonic process the dancers will transit how the materials come about and what it does to performed them.
"Constanza Macras is the ideal Berlin woman – self-confident and creative with a migrant foreground and plenty of energy, imagination and humour, not to mention a touch of craziness, like all true Berliners, but none of their grumpiness. Born and raised in Argentina, Macras has lived in Berlin for decades. She has enriched the city, rubbing along with it and up against it and creating much-acclaimed pieces, from her earlier MIR-Trilogie and Back to the Present, set in the disused Jahnke department store to Scratch Neukölln and Hell on Earth with school children and Megalopolis and Berlin Elsewhere on the big stage."
- Renate Klett, dance- and theatre critic in Berlin
