a piece for and with piano


Fledging means
leaving the old familiar
and to dare something new.


How does it feel to leave your own nest? To go your own way? To show yourself to others? To wish for something and be afraid of it at the same time?

Cautiously, curiously and playfully, the performer approaches her piano and the audience. A hiding place, a child, a cave, a dance partner, a grand piano, a woman. Shapes and images emerge and transform continuously.
Piano music, language, dance and movement theatre merge into a personal piece about the courage to show oneself and the longing for connectetness.

»Performing alone with a black piano in front of a curious crowd is a challenge. Oona Minoo masters it courageously, with charm and stage presence.«

(Ditta Rudle-Tanzschrift)

»Frau mit Flügel is not only original in its artistic idea, but also convinces with interesting dramaturgical decisions and deliberately chosen stylistic devices.«

(Hanne Pilgrim-pianist/performer)

“You say you gonna change this world, but this world changes you.

When did it all start? With the egg from which you emerged?

Have you really ever been a blank slate?”

How did we actually become what we are today? Were we different yesterday?

Can being be at all without becoming and vice versa? And is it possible to transform into someone or something completely different?

A dancer, a musician, a space. Like an ecosystem where each element influences the others. Like human beings in their environment, who are a part of it, even if they may not always be aware of it. Is the dancer moved by the musician? Or the other way around?

Organic, almost imperceptible, then again powerful and explosive. Movements grow from sounds and sounds from movements. They are constantly transforming, adapting and reinventing themselves. The result is a dialogue between dancer and musician. Between movement, image and sound. Between being and becoming. An infinite metamorphosis.
