2: BELE BELTZA

DANCE FILM 2021

“By presenting impressive outer landscapes and images of a strong physical presence, exposing the performer‘s body, Hackl‘s films take the spectators at the same time away into peculiar inner worlds. The high contrast black and white aesthetics, the precise editing and the sound are skillfully matches and create a convincing overall work of art. What is particularly striking about Andrea Hackl’s work is that she is producing the films almost completely by her own, being photographer and performer at the same time. She takes us of a journey of its own, using the camera as a witness, observer and mirror of human presence in the world.”

– Sarah Möller, Pool Dance Film Festival, Berlin

“Bele Beltza refects a strong spirituality that fits with the black and white imagery. It gives a strong expression to a journey in the vastness of the mountains. This work should be best displayed in huge screen – and not ‘only’ as a film project but also as an installation. I wouldn’t change a single thing. The edit has an excellent rhythm and its duration was just as it should be.”

– Aliki Chiotaki, Dance Days Chania

6: SILENT FRAGMENTS

DANCE FILM + INSTALLATION 2018

emotional topography of the body

landscape of memories

becoming fluid

body ocean

liquid space

“Silent Fragments is a work of great expressiveness; created through an intimate and simultaneously intense dialogue with the camera, the result is a work that, on the one side, enhances the potential of video as a medium and, on the other side, gives back an enormous tactile presence through the dancer’s body, in an essential and intense choreography.”

7: PRIMORDIAL ANATOMY

AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE BEING OF WATER [ongoing]

“The more man learned to know the physical nature of water and to use it technically, the more his knowledge of the soul and spirit of this element faded. This was a basic change of attitude, for man now no longer looked at the being of water but merely at its physical value.

[…]

Humanity has not only lost touch with the spiritual nature of water, but is in danger of loosing its very substance.”

– Theodor Schwenk

9: DEPTH OF SHADOW

INSTALLATION PERFORMANCE 2018-2020

hybrid installation performance in which the performance designs the space and the space is the “playground” for the performer, a psychological metaphor for her journey

“Depth of Shadow is a technically and artistically successful and complete performance. The artist Andrea Hackl gives us a moment full of a silence that speaks, allows us to enter into her intimacy with this dancing silence. Intimacy that then becomes ours and we feel one with the performative moment. One also perceives improvisation, which makes the intention of the artist even stronger. This at times silent dialogue with the space is completed with the video projection that also captures the world of sensations.”

– Valentina Gelain, artist of black box genesis

12: WILD HORSE RUN

DANCE PERFORMANCE ABOUT COURAGE AND FREEDOM 2016

The performance went through an ongoing evolution as before the presentation I handed out sheets to the public to explain in their words what Freedom + Courage meant to them. I would share this during the show.

“The performance WILD HORSE RUN is both, wild & touching in its subtlety. 
Andrea Hackl’s movements are flowing, soft and, equally, powerful. 
The music – composed by Ivan Shopov – elevating and rich in its many layers. This second layer of the work supports her intense physicality and accentuates the gentle and soft moments. Her dance – a ritual. Her story – the journey of a powerful woman.”

– Ines Pariente / TOIHAUS Salzburg

“Strong, physical, sensitive … no words !”
