In "Enjoying the cold of the marble" Melissa Kieffer, together with the dancers and the musician and singer Vera Stausberg, who will be live on stage in the piece, investigates phenomena of being, wanting to be and not being. The dance and the musical composition grow out of the experiences of physical-mental alienation and relationship, lightness and powerlessness, touch and rejection, togetherness, community and isolation, joy and thoughtfulness. The piece suggests a sense of wanting to arrive, of wanting to let go, and emphasises the importance of turning to our own bodily constitution and embodiment.
