    "under" ist eine Produktion von matanicola in Koproduktion mit SW&G Sasha Waltz & Guests,
    Grand Theatre Groningen und Sophiensæle, Berlin. In Kooperation mit Kulturbüro Sophien.
    Mit freundlicher Unterstützung von der European Association for Jewish Culture, der Israel Cultural Excellence Foundation (IcExcellence), der Botschaft des Staates Israel, Berlin, der Französischen Botschaft, Berlin und der Sylvania Lighting International.


    Nicola Mascia aus Italien und Matan Zamir aus Israel sind "matanicola". Die beiden Tänzer trafen in Berlin aufeinander, wo sie seit Jahren mit Sasha Waltz arbeiten. In ihrem ersten abendfüllenden Stück "under" begeben sie sich gemeinsam mit der israelischen Choreografin Yasmeen Godder auf die Suche nach all den Widersprüchen und Gemeinsamkeiten ihrer kulturellen und religiösen Herkunft. Wer oder was bestimmt, wer wir sind? Wie beeinflusst die Fremdwahrnehmung unsere eigene Sicht auf unser Selbst? Lösen wir uns von unserer Persönlichkeit, löschen wir unsere Identitäten, entkleiden wir uns unserer Haut, um neu zu definieren, wer wir sind.

    **********English version****************************

    One evening. Two parts. One couple.

    The Italian dancer and choreographer Nicola Mascia and the Israeli Matan Zamir are
    "matanicola". The two met one another in Berlin, where they work since years with Sasha Waltz. For their first work together "under", they decided to invite the Israeli choreographer Yasmeen Godder to join them create a full length evening divided in two parts. An internal and an external point of view on a real/non real couple versus each other.

    #1 matanicola
    Exploring the idea of creating a common identity.
    Confronting contradictions and similarities of our cultural and religious backgrounds.
    Playing with the perception of intimacy and genders expectation.
    Hiding behind acquired behaviors, stereotyped gestures, and obsessive movements.
    Who and what is defining who we are? How does someone else's view influence our self-perception? How does our body carry a memory of identity?
    Strip ourselves from our personality, erase our identity, undress from our skin to redefine who we are.
    #2 yasmeen godder
    Transformation of one's identity as a way of communicating in a relationship. How the play of different "identities" and different "characteristics" of oneself, becomes a way of communicating in a couple. Exploring interior worlds that are made up of strings of private and national identity, played out in shifting social and cultural connotations. Ultimately, how these "symbols" of one self play a deeper role in the most intimate communication of a couple.
