Hole in Space
With "Hole in Space", the team surrounding choreographer Diego Tortelli set out to create a new piece entirely online, inspired by artists Kit Galloway and Sherrie Rabinowitz's 1980 project which saw two larger-than-life displays in New York and Los Angeles connected via satellite feed, thus creating an enormous public communication sculpture. Six dancers from Munich, Berlin and Milan, a performance artist from Berlin, a video artist from Munich, as well as a composer and a percussionist living in London, connected with Tortelli solely in individual video chats. All the individual pieces were ultimately put together only one day before the online premiere, which took place on 18 June 2020. The piece now comes to the 2022 International May Festival in a new version reworked for the stage.

As well-known members of Munich's independent dance scene, Diego Tortelli and Miria Wurm have collaborated on various projects since 2018. Through the implementation of state-of-the-art technologies and theoretical concepts, they create contemporary dance pieces in Tortelli's highly individual choreographic language.
Me, My non-Self and I
Revenge can be a cruel monster. What happens if someone becomes its test subject? Can it completely monopolize this person, forcing them to do everything one's heart desires? Ultimately, one might end up being completely addicted to this very person one thought one could control. And what about the test subject, who is no longer in control of their own body? What happens when they regain their freedom one day?

"Me, My non-Self and I" was inspired by Thierry Jonquet's crime thriller novel "Tarantula", which also formed the basis of Pedro Almodóvar's 2011 film "The Skin I Live In".

Rima Pipoyan is a dancer, choreographer and director. She is a pioneer of modern ballet and contemporary dance in her home country Armenia.
