“ADAPTATION” aims at tracing the director and choreographer’s itinerary over the course of the last four decades. From video to live action and performance art, from Wedekind to Bollywood, from classical dance to trash, from improvisation and the accidental to the obsessively structured, from the screen to the stage and back again. In Michael Laub’s multi-layered performances, adaptations from various media and epochs serve as a catalyst for autonomous strands that are transferred into carefully orchestrated staged pieces. By collaborating with highly-skilled artists as well as non-professionals, Laub is specifically known for crossfading his performer’s reality with fiction. He has gained recognition for his adaptations of portraiture to the stage, which he acquires by making use of realism as well as consequently superimposing the spontaneous with the artificial.

Due to the present circumstances, the lecture will also touch upon the unexpected existential adaptations that have to be made, both in everyday life as well as in renditions of new work on stage and in the virtual space.

In the following talk with Michael Laub, Anne Juren, choreographer of a next generation, looks at adaptations, developments and necessities of artistic work.
