2024 solo - working title

In 2024, Thomas Hauert will create and perform a new solo for himself.

Thomas Hauert intends to deepen in his new solo, a process of creation already used during the last two creations: to make of the psychology, the interior life, the emotions, the unconscious one engine of the movement. On the one hand, there is the experience of the outsider’s position, the one who is not part of the group, the one who looks on from the outside. Zaungast is a German word that describes someone who indirectly attends an event to which he or she was not invited, behind the fence, from afar (literally: “guest of the fence”). It is associated with the Zaunkönig, the German name for wren, a small songbird (literally: “the king of the fence”), which one imagines sitting on the fence. Tiny but a king at the same time. Someone who “sits on the fence” does not take a position, does not make up his mind and does not commit himself.
