Komplizen…” /Accomplices… the new piece by Compagnie Cie zeitSprung (Meret Schlegel & Kilian Haselbeck) is an investigative exploration into what defines communities of people with a common shared goal. The performers discover that there isn’t much difference between whether you want to create dance together or rob a bank. Meret Schlegel, is a ghost, a hostess and the gang leader centering an evening full of energetic youthfulness, stoic composure and 70’s funk.

The community is created and mixed together through elements of slapstick, silent movies and a celebration of breakdown. It empowers the audience to start their own gang and invites them to search for their own accomplices.

Three young dancers, a mature dancer and a musician tussle with one another pulling, tugging, kicking… and all with a touch of humor. Individuals are excluded and included, until one is tossed around like a precious Ming vase reminiscent of a Buster Keaton film, only then to surrender to the Beatbox.

…And they keep on dancing until they get caught.
