Every Body Electric is a simple, but radical invitation to explore potentials through dance, to make them visible, and to delve deep into an archaeology of energy. What other possibilities open up when machines – for example wheelchairs, prostheses, crutches – are regarded and staged as extensions to the body? Personal rhythms, dynamics, beats and bodily characteristics lead to unique dance styles. The explosive power, but also the gentle or forceful poetry of Every Body Electric ultimately rests in how the performers perceive their bodies and how they are perceived.

‘A production that is not warm and cuddly, but instead bristly and grating. Beyond the full-bodied, sometimes difficult to chew on. Beautiful because it has not been beautified.’

– Leipziger Volkszeitung

Fierce Says

Fierce loves techno and Fierce loves Doris Uhlich. We spent a great evening chatting with Doris and the performers of Every Body Electric post show in Dusseldorf, but it wasn’t until a couple of weeks later when we still couldn’t stop thinking about the performance that we decided we had to bring it to Fierce. ++ Boris Kopeinig mixing the banging soundtrack live.
