The truth is an inclined plane. At least the press photos of the piece “Fall into place or what (was) is (true)” by the Potsdam choreographer Laura Heinecke suggest this. A metaphor that would be understandable in times of the so-called “new realities” and their complexities that take on most peculiar forms: tweeting presidents, social divisions, Coronavirus conspiracy theories, and so on. In short: A rejection of categorizations on a social level may be appealing, but in everyday life the jungle of daily and increasingly crazy floods of information is causing us a lot of discomfort. Do we find the truth in “staying true to ourselves”, as some suggest, or does what’s really needed amount to constant nego- tiation with one another in a spirit of togetherness? This is only one of the questions that Laura Heinecke and her company pose.
