A City Seeking its Bodies – Alexandra Waierstall & HAUSCHKA

19. September 8:00 am


Ghost towns, no man’s lands; they stand for loneliness and concurrently for unattainable romance. The choreographer Alexandra Waierstall, the composer and pianist HAUSCHKA and the video artist Marianna Christofides repopulate forgotten places. Together with six dancers they create an abstract musical and scenic portrayal of the hidden, the dark and the subterranean/underground and create a utopian space/region. Questions are posed about the relationship between man and environment, the limits of growth of civilization. And yet the piece has a calm and uplifting effect. Maybe an alternative reality?
