Immerhin ist mein Himmel hin (Sonata #5), which may be translated into English as After all my sky is gone (Sonata #5), is a dance duet by Samuel Feldhandler and Lena Schattenberg. It celebrates their long artistic friendship (eight projects in seven years) and gently seeks to visualize a dancer’s tint on a choreographic vocabulary. The piece consists of four parts: a measured tempo, with liveliness; quick and light, not too serious; very slow and powerful and with momentum.
Immerhin ist mein Himmel hin (Sonata #5) is the result of Feldhandler’s research into how musical and compositional knowledge can inform a choreographic and dance practice, joyfully embracing the specificities, modes and manifestations of the dance art form.
