Anne Juren (AT/FR) & Annie Dorsen (US)
A magic trick is the epitome of the bourgeois concept of entertainment. – Whether this is true or not, the Viennese choreographer born in France, Anne Juren, takes the audience to the magic realm of art with effective tricks. At one point, she conjures up Marina Abramović, at another Valie Export. Yoko Ono and Carolee Schneemann make an appearance, and we also get to visit Martha Rosler’s kitchen – à la Juren. You can’t help laughing. Because it’s not simple imitation but always a trick, a joke with a deeper meaning. And sometimes it hurts. It has to, because “Magical”, which was created in collaboration with director Annie Dorsen from New York, isn’t simply a harmless satire on stage magicians but a sting, a cut and a titillation against the background of feminist discourse.
Duration: approx. 50 min.
