Residency April 2021 Choreographer, Dancer and Visual Artist André Uerba
Touch, closeness, togetherness – a choreographic-performative exploration of the practice of touch: During his residency at radialsystem, André Uerba explores the different dimensions of touch – its properties, qualities and complexities. Through movement, ritardando and focus on the body, he and his co-residents test out different forms of becoming acquainted with and sensing one another as a means to uncover the potential of togetherness. He thus continues his examination of the topic of touch, which he embarked upon in 2018. André Uerba studied solo/dance/authorship at HZT Berlin (Inter-University Centre for Dance) and photography at Ar.Co Lisbon. He was awarded early career funding from the Berlin Senate in 2018 for his piece “Burn Time”, which he presented at radialsystem in 2020 and elsewhere. Uerba has been part of the project “Re-Think (Accessibility & Sustainable Mobility)” since 2021.
