AKEMI TAKEYA (AT/JP)
LEMONISM Vol. 2 LEMONISM X DADAISM
ImPulsTanz2017 © ImPulsTanz / Maximilian Pramatarov
Actionsm, Japonism, Symbolism – historical isms that Takeya has countered with her “Lemonism” during the last years. Besides an assemblage of all the -isms at Leopold Museum, Takeya confronts in her new theatre version the 72 lemons with Dadaism. Born from the spirit of negation between both world wars of the 20th century, how can Dadaism be transferred into today?
An encounter with political and social questions of today, a search of Utopia and a dispute between body and lemon – but whoever or whatever is going to win the fight “LEMO vs. DADA” is less important: There is nothing to lose!
