Bicycle tube snails, tyre-furniture, air pump-kisses and in the midst of all is a dancer who moves as if made of rubber. Seemingly boneless and rather flexible the rubber girl moves through her own world. Here everything can be twisted, squashed, blown up and formed. Everything squeals, gnarls and pipes. Pffhhh… The tanzfuchs team breathes a new life to bicycle tubes and rubber tyres, creates new spaces for experience beyond the known and changes things to companions of the dancer. Everything is object to change, yet never for long.

Pffhhh… is part of the performance project RESPACE on the relations between space, memory, sound and performance by the label tanzfuchs PRODUKTION, headed by Barbara Fuchs. The Cologne artist centres her work around concepts of space and the linking with onomatopoetic electronic compositions.

Premiere guest choreography "Max wants to kiss - always!"

Barbara Fuchs has been invited to choreograph the piece "Max wants to kiss - always!" for Comedia Theatre in Cologne. The production for audiences aged 3 years and aboce will premiere on 10 September 2016.

Max wants to kiss - all the time. He looks for someone to kiss every day and nearly every night. Neither the fluttering butterfly nor the enormous elephant like it, not even the confused crocodile. The antelope lets the grass fall out of its mouth and the bird flies away as soon as he sees Max's pursed lips. Max is a gorilla. He doesn't understand why all the animals of the jungle run away when he tries to kiss them. For Max, kissing is bliss! Suddenly, he hears a voice who asks just the right question and Max suddenly realizes something: Kissing is much more beautiful when both want it with all their hearts...

Further performances in October: 8, 9, 11 & 12
