Gisèle Vienne



Location: Frankfurt LAB (Gallus)


Damp earth, a group of young people. Cool techno beats (Peter Rehberg featuring Detroit techno classics and pioneers such as Manuel Göttsching) accompany the development of a complex web of emotions, desires and tensions in the microcosm of a communal rave. Like a kind of collective ritual. In this piece by internationally acclaimed French-Austrian director, choreographer and visual artist Gisèle Vienne, love, violence, intimacy and aversion alternate. Danced slow motion, temporal distortion and loops sharpen awareness, dissecting the quasi-religious ecstasy of the group that is celebrating a feast as if in trance – well aware that the world has lost all form of spirituality. An emotional state of emergency, overwhelming.
