Festival for Choreography, Performance and Uncanny Bodies
With this year’s focus on uncanny bodies imagetanz coaxes our inner demons out of the dark: In times when threat and danger seems to lurk around every corner, and a culture of fear persistently gains ground in contemporary society, imagetanz brings together international and local artists to launch a performative counter-attack. With
a radical and playful approach, the festival focuses on the gaps in our rationalisation processes, where doubt, anxiety and fear can grow and sheds new light on how – with what strategies and tools - we negotiate otherness.
In their project training, the artist duo hoelb/hoeb deals with physical transformation processes and images of the body at the intersection of human beings, animals and robotics. In the exhibition spaces of Künstlerhaus, the artists open a training laboratory, in which they combine work-out machines, MRI scanners, intensive-care beds, prostheses and robots.>>> Further information >>>
Walk, Hands, Eyes (Vienna)
Walk, Hands, Eyes is a silent walk through Vienna. With their eyes closed, each spectator is guided by a performer for one hour through the city, to experience an entirely new connection between walking, seeing and touching.>>> Further information >>>
I’m Not Here Says The Void
There’s something beneath the carpet, there’s somebody standing behind the curtain. I’m Not Here Says The Void is a dark poetic performance about sculpting fear: fear that materialises all of a sudden and then disappears just as quickly as it came about. Julian Hetzel combines elements of visual theatre, dance, sculpture and electronic music into a journey through uncanny non-places, right into the middle of the unknown.>>> Further information >>>
