“Der Ritt” in Berlin

We gladly present to you another Berlin premiere of our program: Totilas – der Ritt. This award-winning piece (1st prize and audience prize at the 2015 Das beste deutsche Tanzsolo, Euro-scene Leipzig) highlights the ups and downs of an outstanding rock star of the equestrian world with a touch of tragicomedy.
With a stride of grace and amenity, Paul Hess poses a seemingly human question: who or what am I? The telling reportage depicts these reflective thoughts through humorous description: elegant, shiny, rousing, good-natured and obedient,majestic, impressive, powerful and untiring… Developed from a live television recording, Totilas – der Ritt gallops to the tragic end of a memorable last ride.
Who is Paul Hess? choreographer, director, dancer and performer are few of his attributes. German born, Paul graduated from the Folkwang Universität der Künste with degrees in dance and choreography and has been creating his own work since 2008. He worked in various companies such as the Tanztheater Münster, Renegade and artscenico. Since 2008 he has been a guest dancer at the Tanztheater Wuppertal/Pina Bausch and took part in Wim Wenders’ oscar nominated film PINA. He is currently a member of the Susanne Linke Company in Theater Trier. Together with his partner Luiza Braz Batista he founded the artist collective MANADA to increase the exchange between different artists and art genres.
What is the press saying about Paul? With his solo (…) he manages to balance dance and play with precision and irony.” – Leipziger Internet Zeitung // “Thoughtful, precise and highly comical” – Dimo Riess, Leipziger Volkszeitung
