Kilian Haselbeck/Meret Schlegel
Switzerland

To be or Orthopädie (duet)

Two people, from different generations come together - what connects them? How do they treat one another? One is old - the other young: what are the consequences for the encounter? With wit, this duo revolves and evolves around these issues, exploring their similarities as well as their differences.

Kilian Haselbeck studied dance at the Ballet Centre Gerda von Arb and the Rotterdam Dance Academy (Codarts). Since 2008 he has worked as a freelance dancer and choreographer performing in Belgium, China, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Austria, the USA and Switzerland. He has worked with Philippe Saire, Meret Schlegel, Marisa Godoy (Oona Project), Philip Amann, Patrick Widrig and Sara Pearson.

Meret Schlegel is a dancer, dance teacher, dramaturg and rhythmist. She has had a long and distinguished career in dance both on stage and off, performing across Europe and the US and often working with artists from other disciplines. She has worked in many cultural institutions in Zürich including 10 years as Director of the Dance House.
