LIVE: (Possession & Poetry Part 2)


Machfield at Tanzquartier Wien

PREMIÈRE: LIVE: (Possession & Poetry Part 2) :: May 10-12, 2007, 7pm :: Length: 3 hours (TQW Foyer and Studios) :: Tanzquartier Wien | Studio.

When someone goes on a journey then they narrate something: for two months, the choreographers Sabina Holzer and the “fictionaut” Jack Hauser went in search of material for their new production, studied Morocco and Spain as well as films, music, texts and dreams. The unforeseeable and the unknown – essential components of every journey – are also the essential parameters of LIVE. On stage with the Machfeld artists’ collective, consisting of Sabine Maier and Michael Mastrototaro as well as the musician Martin Siewert, Holzer and Hauser go into the adventure and the way of work of traveling:

“Some things are prescribed, a lot is prepared”, say the performers. They follow the gestures, sounds, lines and colours which have been appearing carefully. A secret system of phantasms? This and other things the audience is invited to discover with them.

Bon voyage!
