Florentina Holzinger

Apollon

Yee-haw! The Greek god of the arts shifts from Mount Parnassus towards rodeo. Together with half a dozen naked, heroic muses, Austrian choreographer Florentina Holzinger has hijacked George Balanchine’s Apollon Musagète. She transforms the historical gem of a ballet into an intelligently choreographed, explosive trash performance which she now sets in Vienna’s Volkstheater. The untamed vision between feminism and orgy blurs the lines between circus and dance, bodybuilding, pop culture and high culture. In the process, the classical lyre becomes a sharp axe, the idol a rodeo machine, and an iron nail a nose fetish.

The performance is not suitable for an audience younger than 18 years

Duration: 90 min
