Restructuring (Véronique Langlott)
Restructuring is a collaboration between performer and choreographer Véronique Langlott, projection artist Katrin Bethge and sound designer Alexandra Grieß. The choreography Restructuring creates a three-dimensional, multimedia image on stage: a picture of movement, sound and light. Restructuring plays with the individual components of choreography and focuses on the simultaneity of the various expressive possibilities of the media. Thematically, the choreography deals with the discrepancy between the two terms »faith« and »knowledge«. How determinable and definitive are the two terms? What is belief, what is knowledge?
“Restructuring" by Véronique Langlott is a dance performance that is uniquely successful in treating the elements of dance, light and sound exactly equally in their artistic independence. This makes it possible for these elements to communicate in a very exciting and gripping way on stage.”

Véronique Langlott studied dance at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerp, Belgium, and in 2013 completed her MA Choreography at Fonty’s Hoogeschool in Tilburg, The Netherlands. In her work she collaborates with different artists and media and experiments with different formats of presentation. She creates dance pieces, installations and exhibitions. The central aspect of her work approach is to play with different forms of representation of dance and, through the mirror of the translation into another medium, to broaden the perspective both to the consideration of dance and art.
» Ballhaus Ost
Ballhaus Ost is a production space for independent theater, performance and dance. Located in the former celebration and assembly hall of a Berlin Free Church Community and built in 1907, Ballhaus Ost cooperates with groups and artists from all fields of the performing arts, including well-established groups and artists as well as newcomers and emerging members of the independent performing arts community. As an experimental stage for various forms of contemporary theater, Ballhaus Ost invites its audience to experience and discover new ways of artistic debates with today's reality of life. During the German Democratic Republic (GDR), before the venue was used as a theater, the ballroom was used as the Casion des Handwerks and became a pool hall and nightclub after the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Ballhaus Ost was founded by the directors Uwe-Moritz Eichler, Philipp Reuter and the performer Anne Tismer in 2006. Daniel Schrader and Tina Pfurr have been the artistic directors since 2011.
