PERFORMANCES & REPERTOIRE

Kopie von 68_Porny_Days_2017_Freitag_web

POPorno is a duo created by Silvana and Eleonora TeKi TeKua that combines humour and critical analysis to reveal the parallels between pop and porn, clichés and questionable moves. 

With a good dose of mockery, show business hustle, and irony thrown in for good measure!

TEKHISTORY 2011-17

SWARMS

Swarms 18 dancers, 2 generations.

Swarms was presented in its entirety for the first time in 2014 and danced in the same year at the Oltner Tanztagen. Originally an intergenerational dance show bringing together children, teenagers, and professional dancers, it was adapted for the Soirée TeKi TeKua and performed by a new team of dancers.

 

Through its quirky aesthetic and unexpected reversals, the show Swarms immerses the audience into the evolutionary cycle, evoking life and survival. Drawing its inspiration from the movement and behaviour of unicellular and multicellular organisms, including mutants, it creates an atmosphere from an unknown world, from the past or the future.

 

Choreography: Lea Fuhrer & Natalie Hofer

Dancers: teenagers and dancers from the company 

Presented as part of: Tanz in Olten, the Soirée TeKi TeKua @ Tanzhaus, among other events

BOOKED

In the long piece Booked, the dancers address our need for company and our desire to belong. Addiction, distorting reality, a change in personality... The dancers show how social media not only imitates reality, but also how a strange variant of it takes shape, which ends up encroaching on real life and its many aspects.

 

Choreography: Lea Fuhrer & Eleonora Zweifel, in collaboration with the dancers

Dancers: Lea Fuhrer, Eleonora Zweifel, Michèle Rhyner, Branca Scheidegger, and Prisca Jelena Pfister

Presented at the: Kulturmarkt Zurich, Brückepfeiler Bern, Theater Rennweg Biel, Festival EviDanse

TU ES QUI? TU ES QUOI?

Who are you? What makes you the way you are? How do you move and why? In this short piece, the dancers come face to face with their own search for identity. Individuality within a group, differentiating ourselves, marginalization, and integration are daily challenges.

 

Choreography: Lea Fuhrer & Eleonora Zweifel, in collaboration with the dancers

Dancers: Lea Fuhrer, Eleonora Zweifel, Michèle Rhyner, Branca Scheidegger, Prisca Jelena Pfister, Halina Stefaniak, and Silvana Lemm

Presented at the: Tanzhaus Zurich as part of the Breakthrough Festival, the Tanz in Olten AGM, the KUK Awards (2nd place) at the Zürich Tanzt festival

SOIRÉE TEKI TEKUA

The Soirée TeKi TeKua was born out of a special desire: to present the TeKis in all their rich diversity over the course of one evening. Performances and pieces from the company’s repertory are showcased, but it is also an opportunity for dancers of different ages to share the stage on the same evening.

 

In April 2017, as part of the voting campaign YES! for a new Tanzhaus, the Tanzhaus organized a month during which artists had carte blanche for an evening. For TeKi TeKua, this was the ideal platform to present its work, but also to draw the public’s attention to the subject of the vote. We used the same format from that evening at our anniversary – celebrated in November 2017 at the Coupole in Biel – and it is now an integral part of the TeKi repertory.

 

Concept/Idea: Eleonora Zweifel
Direction and Production: Lea Fuhrer & Eleonora Zweifel

Dancers: from the MikroTeKis to professional dancers
