Felix Bürkle loves unconventional perspectives and finding unexpected ways of looking at things. In his production “You, the Other”, the Düsseldorf-based choreographer ponders what happens when two people encounter each other. When does the “spark” ignite between them? When do encounters leave their mark, and what constitutes a relationship? Between oneself and another, between the stage and the audience.
In his previous works “beckett, beer and cigarettes” and “the wood project”, Felix Bürkle concerned himself with concrete objects such as beer bottles and wood. The search for movement patterns at the interface between subject and object poses one of the constants of his work. A native of Freiburg, he found his way to contemporary dance through juggling and object manipulation. Following his education at the Lido Ecole de Cirque in Toulouse, he studied dance at the Folkwang University of the Arts.
