..."An explosive finale: The German-Swiss troupe MS-Tanzwerk enchanted the public with expressive choreography to close this years Schrittmacher /Pacemaker Festival."..."The piece called "Mental Maps & Patterns" ... a wonderfully irritating challenge to any and all festivals."..."This kind of well thought-out, sensuously consistent dance form is precious, as the randomness of dance everywhere else has made painfully clear."..."Mit der deutsch-schweizerischen Truppe ms-tanzwerk hatte der Veranstalter auch diesmal wieder das richtige Händchen bewiesen."..."Krönender Abschluss mit der faszinierenden Kompanie ms-tanzwerk im Ludwig-Forum."
...solche Art durchdachten, sinnlich-konsequenten Tanztheaters ist kostbar, wie die Beliebigkeit von Tanz allerorten schmerzhaft spürbar macht.
Since it was founded in 2000, the young and innovative dance troupe known as MS-Tanzwerk, whose artistic and production directors are Mario Heinemann and Sophie Jaillet, has presented three successful productions nationally and internationally. The uniqueness of Cie MS Tanzwerk lies in the combined work of the two gifted artists, who complement each other very well. This combination bears fruit in audacious and uncompromising productions of incredible precision, in sensuous sequences of movements, and extraordinary choreography. "Blind Date" was, for example, honored with the Excellence Award for Choreography at the New York Fringe Festival. "Mario Heinemann is a sensitive choreographer with a broad dynamic spectrum. His works are socially defined and for him art is bound up with societal accountability."
Fringe NYC has numerous dance events, but surely none will achieve the cool perfection of "Blind Date - Body Theater" (…).
