Ruth Childs / Lucinda Childs - Scarlett’s (CH/US)

fantasia

What do a historic Disney film, a popular form of musical composition, an Arabian horse show and this clever dance solo have in common? Correct: the name fantasia. But choreographer and dancer Ruth Childs – niece of the famous star of American post-modernism, Lucinda Childs – doesn’t simply assemble casual references here. Rather, with its humorous driving force, a sophisticated composition of costumes and pieces of music that the artist loved to listen to as a child, this work is extremely precisely put together. A masterpiece of transformation, with subliminal influences from major artists like Hannah Wilke and Bruce Nauman.

Austrian Premiere
Duration: 55 Minutes
