The cold moves into our bodies. Creeps under the skin, drives into the bones up to the marrow. Expels warmth, love, resonance. Prelude to the Cold is the name of the latest production of the Cooperativa Maura Morales, a prelude to the cooling of the human body, of the female body. A coldness that is particularly strong in the "contactless time" of the pandemic.
"There are special dancers and dancers in this ensemble - beings of steel and silk, ready to explore and transcend the limits of their bodies." (Maura Morales)
In ever new, intense forms of movement, the proud struggle for empowerment, intimacy and recognition is fought against the cold principle: relentless, expressive, breathless - driven by the unforgiving beats of Michio Woirgardt. The end does not take place, only the incessant force of the dance still trembles. As hope.

About the Cooperativa Maura Morales
The Cooperativa Maura Morales is one of the few contemporary dance companies in North Rhine-Westphalia that has succeeded for many years now in consolidating the focus of its artistic work while at the same time continually expanding its national and especially international range. Their unique selling point is the close correlation of movement and sound, choreography and music. Depending on the idea, impulse and interest, the core ensemble around choreographer and dancer Maura Morales and composer Michio Woirgardt expands to include additional artists and dancers. The high impact potential of the Cooperativa Maura Morales is revealed, by an extremely high national and international tour volume of up to 50 guest performances per year in Tanzania, Brazil, Korea, Lebanon, Panama, Dominican Republic, La Réunion, Macedonia, Russia and all of Europe.
