Above all, noish~ is an experience in intensity which Zimpel and Eubanks share with their audience. The piece approaches dance as an incessant flow of impulses, images, associations and temporarily captured forms.
"The body filters itself through noise, spatially intensifying the disintegration of all of its emanations. The process is intensified by music. There is no «I», I attest to it" (Maria Zimpel).
Maria Zimpel is a choreographer and dancer. She holds an MA in cultural studies awarded by the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, and has completed the Contemporary Dance, Choreography and Context programme at the Inter-University Centre for Dance (HZT) in Berlin (Universität der Künste). Her work draws on somatics and autobiographical abstraction, and her pieces are different forms of creation of intensity. An author of solos and ensemble pieces, she debuted in 2011 in Vienna. Her main collaborations as a dancer include Isabelle Schad, Rosalind Crisp, Kat Valastur and, more recently, Karol Tymiński. Since 2014, she has worked with Bryan Eubanks.back print
