A divided moment of attention
To help bring her own personal examination of new forms of dance and performance theatre to the stage, the 52 year-old actress Elettra de Salvo comissioned two international choreographers and a dance-dramaturge to create a solo for her. Prue Lang, Jochen Roller and Célestine Hennermann were all 33 years old when they created this performance trilogy – Some others and me. They observed the actress with respect to her manner, her career and her everyday life and came to similar conclusions, but with different implications. Aesthetically, each developed wholly individual pieces, for, with and by way of Elettra de Salvo. At the heart of the work is the conflict of two generations of artists, divided by almost 20 years and an accordingly altered sense of aesthetics.
