In the show she plays Calamity Jane and the aim was to create a safe space for Calamity to be herself. I always find myself torn between those extremes, so I really wanted to assemble a 'freak show' cast to be my muses. We love to do the most boring things together like watching serial killer or conjoined twin documentaries while everybody else goes out to party and seek reproductive activity. Yes, we are total blood sisters. The gaze regime finds reflection in the character of a porn producer who documents the performance. I observed that American side shows are pretty similar to body-art experiments of the 70s, and I found this link intriguing since the only real difference is that one claims that what they are doing is art, whereas the other is proud to call their acts pure entertainment. This will be followed by an intense and diverse program of performances and theory throughout the new season.

Car chez FlorentinaHolzinger, les danseuses sont pendues par les cheveux, transpercées par des crocs de boucher ou encore éclaboussées de litres de faux sang. In joint rituals, they learn to master their bodies and minds, and they acquire supernatural powers, such as flying. Maybe I should point out, though, that none of us are suicidal, extreme masochists or sadists; we are all just professional performance geniuses, like most women I know. Can you tell us about that, how it came together? This has been an issue in contemporary dance that was always talked about behind closed doors. Your dismantling the bull almost moved me to tears. The naked bodies of 120 people flick, vibrate and slap against each other to electronic sounds and abstract techno tracks. A quest for perfection in an ephemeral world, during which the gross is transformed into the sublime.

Florentina Holzinger: Apollon

florentina holzinger

Distribution internationale: Something Great, Berlin. Apollon Musagète is to be a 'post-baroque' ballet piece on the reinvention of the tradition. Financement: Service culturel de la Ville de Vienne, Fonds pour les arts du spectacle. My education was contrary to that. Laurie Penny Since 2011, Florentina Holzinger has been enriching the international scene with breathtaking acrobatic performances, muscular female bodies and fight scenes — as well as a generous dose of pop-cultural references and a penchant for parody and trashiness. Through an all-female cast — aged twenty to eighty and from different dance backgrounds — Florentina Holzinger raises the question of the brutality of the choreographic heritage and its cult of beauty. Among the highlights in the performance section is the world premiere of Doris Uhlich's biggest choreography to date featuring 120 naked performers on October 25.

I immediately respected her skill. Concept, performance et chorégraphie: Florentina Holzinger. Why do they make themselves dependent so easily? First part with babies masks + first danced part without masks, this was great. We are dealing with the body and we come from a history where dance was put on a similar level as prostitution, as we can see in early ballet. Initially I wanted to use angle grinders and a lot of chainsaws. I believe in finding people or them finding you for the right project, and usually magic and coincidence do their parts and they do their parts well. To be honest everything sprouted from the collaboration on- and offstage.

Thank you for the show, that i would like to see again, and as well see others of your past or next shows. I knew she was a no-bullshit-hard-worker and I was looking for someone to be my training buddy, somebody who would eventually be able to lift more weight than me. The story revolves around Apollo the Greek god of the music who receives a visit from three muses: Terpsichore muse of the dance and the song , Polyhymnia muse of the mime and Calliope muse of the poetry. A quest for perfection in a transient world where the devil is transformed into the sublime. Dynamics between choreographers and dancers, especially with opposing genders, are easily problematic, as there is always a power structure present. Feeling-wise I knew right away that I wanted her.

Florentina Holzinger: Apollon

florentina holzinger

Annina inspired me to create a utopia for Apollo where men don't exist. I need them to trust me unconditionally, to be passionate about what they do, and ultimately to be totally committed to the project. Florentina Holzinger resides and works in the Netherlands. Her work sits on the boundary between performance art, choreography, ritual and stunt show. With this production she works with a team of professional stuntwomen, dancers and a live camerawoman. In response I got a lot of Craigslist dick pics with surprisingly small dicks, but then Evelyn showed up. Inspiration for her often brutal productions is drawn from disciplines such as kickboxing, circus, striptease or yoga.

If done with care and love, anything is possible. The combination of young ambitious females and powerful men with authority has proven itself time and again to be profoundly flawed and lately what occurred to me was: What is this role in which women often submit themselves to this kind of dynamic? Conception lumière et responsable technique: Anne Meeussen. I say I was looking for extraordinary women, but ultimately I just wanted to work in an uninhibited climate and with serious and disciplined workers. The trilogy with Vincent Riebeek found continuation in the making of their newest work Schönheitsabend. This time she works with neoclassical ballet and with a fully female cast.

As of 2021, Florentina will be an artist-in-residence at the Volksbühne Berlin. I saw this ballet and immediately wanted to redo it with an all female cast. I wanted different bodies attempting these forms and to see how the meaning of the choreography would change if there was no male Apollo. I dreamed about us being a backdrop for Evelyn during the entire show, just being her decoration. La plus âgée des danseuses a 80 ans. By switching roles and replacing Apollo with a female character, there seem to be many very powerful moments of deconstructing male dominance. I also researched practices related to side shows, such as stunting or strong-woman-acts and weightlifting.
