Displacement (Ruben Reniers / rubarb dance & art)
In his new dance work in-place / dis-place / re-place, choreographer Ruben Reniers confronts the ubiquitous phenomenon of displacement. The choreography focuses on the individual inscriptions of the bodies, tests their mutability and thus the plasticity of their authenticity. The doubts about one's own identity in the face of an altered environment are to be tested in a physical discourse.
The performance on June 8th is part of Theaterscoutings Berlin and the performance on June 9th ist also part of "What is What" by Tanzscout Berlin.

Ruben Reniers was born in Jakarta and grew up in Rotterdam, where he completed a Bachelor’s degree in contemporary dance at the prestigious Hogeschool voor de Kunsten / CODARTs. His career as a dancer led him as a member of the ensemble to several theaters in Germany. His long-term collaboration with Amanda Miller/Pretty ugly Tanz Köln, as well as numerous collaborations with freelance choreographers was one of the main impulses for his artistic development. In 2009, Reniers pursued his fascination with movement and composition through the creation of his own choreographic works with rubarb dance & art with the illustrator Barbara Steinitz and Freiraum Ensemble in Cologne.
