Company 605 / German Jauregui
World Premiere
Company 605, known for its virtuosic physicality, along with with German Jauregui, Brussels-based choreographer and long-time Ultima Vez company member, bring the premiere of Albatross to the Firehall stage. This collaborative creation is a driving duet that pulls apart a single moment, enabling us to dissect and experience its contents in expanded time.

Like two parts of one’s self, in continuous motion and perpetual contact, two bodies inhabit a single person’s trajectory through a test of endurance. Faced with both a physical and psychological burden, the heavy weight that they must carry, the performers are forced to surrender to the circumstances and to their interdependence. They simultaneously become each other’s obstruction and support to keep moving forward.

A constant falling that never ends in the ground, like the Albatross flying without flapping his wings, humans live resisting their descent into regret.

Created & Directed by German Jauregui in collaboration with Company 605
