Samuel Feldhandler (AT/FR)
’d he meant vary a shin’s
The hidden eminence behind this dance trio is French linguist and writer Jean-Pierre Brisset, a saint in the pataphysical calendar. He was revered by André Breton and Marcel Duchamp, among others. Incidentally, pataphysics was invented in the late 19th century by Alfred Jarry as a subversive-ironic alternative concept to science. For Samuel Feldhandler, Brisset’s claim that languages do not originate from older languages but are formed by convolutions and transformations in and of themselves is of key importance. In this sense, “Theme and Variations” becomes the phrase “’d he meant vary a shin’s”, and the language becomes a whirring, subtle dance that unfolds to electronic music by the young choreographer/composer out of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations and is dedicated to the great postmodern choreographer Trisha Brown (Theme and Variation, 1972).
