BACK TO ZERO (Kadir Amigo Memis)
Kadir Amigo Memis considers himself an "urban nomad". He is inspired by everyday gestures, nature, odors, sounds and city lights. In his new production at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Amigo uncovers hidden spaces not only through dance but also with the help of text.
This performance takes place in the courtyard of HAU1.

Kadir Amigo Memis was born in 1974 in Bilecik, Turkey and came to Berlin at the age of ten. Inspired by the emergent hip-hop culture of the 1980s, he taught himself the dances of the street as an autodidact. In his productions, the individual exchange between dancers from different cultures plays a central role.
Under the artistic direction and management of Annemie Vanackere, HAU Hebbel am Ufer presents contemporary artistic positions that explore the intersection of theater, dance, and performance. In addition, music, visual arts, and theoretically oriented discursive events are core components of the diverse schedule of programming. Instead of relying on a permanent ensemble, HAU both develops and presents international co-productions, festivals and projects realized within and beyond Berlin’s international dance and theater community.
