Culture / Performance
in englischer Sprache

Die Performance greift die Kunstaktion von Pussy Riot in der Moskauer Christ-Erlöser-Kirche auf und zeigt anhand der skandalumwitterten Choreografie zu Strawinskys „Le Sacre du Printemps“ von 1913, wie Kunstwerke zur richtigen Zeit am richtigen Ort den wunden Punkt einer Gesellschaft treffen.

Dr. Christine GAIGG

Choreographer, Director, Performer, 2nd nature, Vienna

 Christine Gaigg studied philosophy in Vienna and choreography in Amsterdam. After many years of collaborating with composers of new music (e.g. with Bernhard Lang on difference and repetition in the Trike series 2004-2012; Maschinenhalle#1 opened the festival steirischer herbst 2010) she is now focussing on "peformance essays". She uses the genre to present socio-political issues in various formats to allow tension between physical emotional and reflective analytical moments to emerge. Besides DeSacre! Pussy Riot meets Vaclav Nijinsky (2013) these include Maybe the way you made love twenty years ago is the answer? (2014 and 2018), untitled (look, look, come closer) (2015) about viral images of war, CLASH (2016) about homophobia as outsourcing of self-hatred, and Meet (2018), an experimental format of intimate encounters. As director she staged Elfriede Jelinek’s "Über Tiere" at Theater am Neumarkt Zürich and Xaver Bayer’s "Wenn die Kinder Steine ins Wasser werfen" at Schauspielhaus Wien.
