Inspired by strong emotions about love, Soul Chain combines ballet and electro to an exciting contemporary dance performance. The ensemble becomes a swarm full of energy in an extremely challenging choreography that won the German Theatre Prize DER FAUST in 2018. Even though Sharon says Soul Chain is a play about love and longing, you should not expect too much romance. Rather, the movements are animalistic and pure, a steaming group that moves with the highest discipline in rhythmic unison. The longer a unisono lasts, the more time we have to search for the differences as public and can find the dancers in full intention. As the choreographer says, one can see from the same thing how different we are. So here, in the contrast between the group and the individual, she expresses her love for the absolute uniqueness of each individual.
We find a big loneliness in us confronted with the love of life, this huge passion, which is not always present in our feelings.
We have to accept this loneliness of us all. Everyone is living their own life and is ending it alone. There are big emotions within the bodies. I believe, it doesn´t need a story, much more its priority shows the actual expression through the bodies and muscles.
Soul Chain represents a creation about desire. You see the pain, the sweat, how the inner being is trying to find its way to the outside. This power is growing more and more while the bodies are slowly getting tired.
For me it´s all about the humans, who are standing here. How they look at you, how you look to them, how they look at each other. Sometimes it´s impossible to see the emotion through your eyes, but you know they are there you feel them under your skin.
Basically it`s all about love, about the love to the others, to yourself, to the space which surrounds you, love to everything. Love is like tissue. I don´t plan any scene, much more I feel what is right in this moment very intuitive, almost like an animal.
