History and Violence
A FIELD PROJECT PROLONGUED BY PUBLIC PERFORMANCES
Throughout this Field Project we will work and focus on how to represent violence on stage. Physical violence, psychological violence, domestic violence, historical violence, sexual violence... Toying with different strategies and parameters of representation (narration, dance, speed, gravity, music etc.) the group will embrace common actions based on current political events. Duets and smaller formats will shape up as we go along. Break up and break through are welcome and potentially seen as positive moves. Thus random people and western superheroes will meet in this joint venture to voice and happily dance today's world symphony of violence.
With around ten selected performers from this Field Project we will continue this process straight after these five days Field Project at the Weltmuseum Wien to premiere a Performance on 29 July. Following dates: 31 July and 02 August.
Participants with fighting techniques are welcome (this is not mandatory though :)).
More about the Performance History of Violence:
Any given museum gives you the feeling that you are standing in a safe place. Actually - literally - in a safe. But one can also consider this valuable site as a space for extreme contradictions. Thanks to passionate and greedy collectors these items embody and acknowledge the fights they bear to finally end up before your eyes. Let me try to lay out a few words that eventually register the contradictory journey one goes through in a museum:
Misrepresent/Openness... you name it!
For this welcoming act around ten performers will dance the fear and the pride of hunting and being hunted. This performance is designed as a tribute to the past and upcoming fights for a better world.
