Fassbinder, Faust and the Animists

A monster raises its head in the court of the muses of Weimar Classicism, in which Faust once danced with Gretchen and Mephistopheles in the first part of Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s tragedy. The name of the beast is Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and it is invoked by Michael Laub, the grand master of incredible encounters. In this latest piece by the Belgian artist, film mixes with theatre, classicism, animism and pop to become a decidedly post-colonial choreography. Goethe comes across Fassbinder in connection with the latter’s film Beware of a Holy Whore from 1971. Not in the form of a drama, however, but in a mutual overexertion of Madison dance in a Cambodian interpretation and in South East Asian animism instead. Around 15 performers rub high culture and pop culture against each other, and the traditional, but above all contemporary Madison kicks self-assuredly into the purgatory of Fassbinder’s film with Khmer sounds from Phnom Penh. What this reveals is nothing less than a “West-Eastern divan” for the 21st century.
