Liquid Loft / Chris Haring (AT)
"The Perfect Garden: ODEON - Mush Room (extended)"
A room, with a form like a block and a consistency like a breath, is patiently waiting for occupants. It is liquid loft’s “Mush Room”: another masterstroke – after “Wellness” – from Chris Haring’s critical-ironic programme “The Perfect Garden” about the illusions of our consumer society. The Viennese choreographer, who won the Golden Lion at the Biennale di Venezia in 2007, examines potential “concepts of perfect living and being” in the deceptive garden of Eden created by French artist Michel Blazy. However, perfection is naturally prone to flaws. This is why the dancers in their Mush Room get caught in repetitive loops.
Mechanically, like broken robots, they carry out the same patterns of movement again and again, thereby joining themselves together to become idle human machines. Their bodies flicker and stutter, get verbal diarrhoea, are played forwards and backwards. And they don’t seem to be aware of any of it. It all seems very real. Because our purchase paradises, too, are deceptive traps more often than not.
Duration: approx. 60 min.
