“I am giving birth to my mother…”

This is how the narrative of choreographer and dancer Eva Borrmann begins, who approaches the image of the mother in a solo performance. She reconstructs formative dance experiences with her own mother, who devoted herself to flamenco for years. Thus the drawing of the graceful flamenco dancer is omnipresent in Borrmann’s performance and at the same time forms an image of woman that searches for its present position.

“Retrospectively, I feel my mother and flamenco as strongly formative – a passionate, strong and loud image of women opens up to me. Only where has this strong and inspiring image disappeared to over the years?”

Eva Borrmann’s performative narrative is unsparing in this respect, oscillating between wistful turns to the past and crystal-clear observations of catastrophic family events. In sixty minutes, a past weekend in the family circle is constructed that resonates to this day. Reflections, dance ecstasy and fantasy become a burning declaration of love for one’s own biography – a struggle between nostalgia and the present.

In this performance, dance and text merge to form an evening of theatre that transcends genres and is created in close collaboration with Urs Humpenöder.

About

Eva Borrmann (1988*) is a freelance choreographer, dancer and founder of the PLAN MEE company. After her training in classical and contemporary dance, she worked at the Nuremberg State Theatre together with Johann Kresnik, Joshua Monten and Laura Scozzi. In the independent scene for Alexandra Pirici at Art Basel and for deufert&plischke at K3/Kampnagel Hamburg. At the same time she studied in the CAS programme “Dance and Performing Arts” and “Arts Education” at the Institute for Theatre Studies Bern (CH).

Since 2015 she has been producing full-length productions with her company PLAN MEE. The focus of the projects is always the socially formed body. Her works have been shown at the tanzhaus nrw, the Tafelhalle Nürnberg, the Kunsthalle Baden-Baden and the Sophiensaele Berlin, among others.
In 2021 she was part of the “Bodies of Care” project of the Goethe Institute Indonesia as a choreographer.

Eva Borrmann received the impulse funding of the City of Nuremberg for the years 2021/2022/2023 and will explore the topic of “Kitsch” in close cooperation with the Tafelhalle Nuremberg and bring it to the stage. She therefore works closely with the artist and photographer Arina Essipowitsch and the writer Urs Humpenöder.

She also communicates her artistic work and research in workshops, conferences and seminars at various institutions and universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg, Theatre Studies in Erlangen, at the tanzhaus nrw and many more.

In addition to her work with PLAN MEE, she performs and choreographs for other artists such as Theater Morgenroth and Schwester, for the director Manuela Neudegger and the artists Michael Akstaller and Jan St. Werner. She is also part of a group of artists who have taken on the site of the motorway service station as a place of artistic research.
