The Body of Nothing is a constellation of bodies, space and sound. Contemporary dancers move between semi-transparent fabric walls according to a choreography by the artist and to the sound of his alter ego Bas Grossfeldt. The spaces are freely accessible to the audience and the performers move through the audience. The performers recall moving sculptures.

Through shifts in perspectives, proximity and distance, sound and body, an atmospheric space is created in which various systems and networks of collective and individual identities and relationships are established or broken.

Among other things the performance deals with walking as one of the most political movements. It examines how subconscious movements as well as gestures and physical attributions have been shaped. With seven performers, Søren Siebel creates a space of experience that questions one’s own or collectively emerging identities and understands them – almost utopian – as something that is in constant adjustment and reorientation.

Following the 60-minute performance, the premiere of the digital movement archive will take place in the Sudhaus with two large video projections. The archive shows the artist’s fragmented vocabulary of movement and the aesthetic language of the artist, which he continuously develops with the performers over various works.
