Christine Gaigg / 2nd nature (AT)
polymono

If the title of Christine Gaigg’s group work polymono had taken “a more aggressive form”, it could have been called: Smash Mononormativity. But the Viennese choreographer, director and writer is not trying to harden the fronts between so-called “free love” and monogamy. Instead, lines are being blurred, audience members and performers are given the chance to move towards each other in this “swaying, fluid and ever-changing space”, the chance to, putting it simply: meet. Gaigg’s immersive performance essay charmingly questions our construction of pluralities and exclusivity. In a space designed by Philipp Harnoncourt, the performers Manuela Deac, Anna Prokopová, Florian Tröbinger, Frank Willens and Christine Gaigg herself develop a patchwork of relationships that involves the audience in participatory interweavings, amorous circles and cooperative networks, but also exclusivities and demarcations – in what Gaigg describes as an “breezy atmosphere: light-footed, funny and urgent.”
