Sons of Sissy

ImPulsTanz Classic2017

Four perky lads in fetching and queer traditional costume start yodelling and proceed to ironically deconstruct folk dance. At times, they dispense with their garments but not the music, which consists of violins, a button accordion, a double bass, a horn, bells and a whip. The “Sons of Sissy” strip the dance and themselves down in this piece by choreographer Simon Mayer, once a member of the Vienna State Opera ballet company. They jump and schuhplattl, distort the folkloristic clichés they invoke and generally have a ball while being neither harmless nor sentimental.
