WAR (Ein Kriegstanz)

“Hoko” is the name of the war dance of the indigenous in¬habitants of Rapa Nui, also known as the Easter Island, whose mysterious and tragic civilisation left gigantic sculptures behind. WAR is the provocative result of an in-depth artistic investigation on site. It is a sensual, a critical and an explosive manifest against “the progressive homogenisation of art and the world”. Four performers turn the Rapa Nui’s folkloristic search for identity, which also serves as a tourist attraction, into a contemporary dance against globalised anti-culture.
