Michikazu Matsune (AT/JP)
What would the bed, probably our most important piece of furniture, be without it? A frame or possibly a plank bed, a bed sheet-covered divan at best. It may sound soft, but it has to be said: every bed needs a mattress. The Viennese choreographer originally from Japan, Michikazu Matsune, has undertaken an artistic investigation into this support of the lying body. And rightly so, because humans spend about one third of their life on a mattress. It bears their resting, endures their loving and their sicknesses, takes in dreams, sweat and tears as well as the parting from life. Matsune examines both its rousing and its quiet existence with five dancers, relating it to a wealth of sculptures and paintings. These Mattress Pieces penetrate deeply into our feelings of desire and belonging.
Duration: 70-80 min
