      An urban dance evening awaits you on the 9th and 10th of September at Tanzhaus Zürich. 90 Minutes full of excitement, emotions and high performance! The young and upcoming choreographer Muhammed Kaltuk presents his first Full-length work “Father Politics” with a versatile ensemble, clear picture language and statements! Also guest is the award-winning dance company Frantics with their latest creation “Last Space”. The four dancers impress with their dance-vocabulary, which makes use of Breaking as well as Contemporary movements.

      Company MEK / FATHER POLITICS unmasks the emotionalization of politics and the polarization through political advertising campaigns. The young, multinational and diverse ensemble tells from a personal perspective about powerlessness in the face of politics, about being paralyzed when you don't feel represented. It is about energies that arise when one becomes politicized, about showing attitude!

      Frantics / Last Space - When the unconscious mind manifests, old memories and stories are brought to the surface. Thoughts arrive - we collapse and freeze, elongate and accelerate, destroy and rebuild. The audience witnesses how everything changes and merges anew through a unique, energetic and delicate physicality.
