Beschreibung

For MUSICAL the choreographer has created an hour long dance piece based on a series of classic musicals and elaborated karaoke style-video works. The work mimics and refers to particular scenes or moods from a wide genre of the 20th century musical stretching from the 30’s to the 90’s. The characteristic of these musicals is their structuring along ‘clear cut’ male and female roles. MUSICAL will be performed by nine dancers, including Alexandra Bachzetsis herself. Through the careful selection of a variety of dances and performances Bachzetsis re-examines how gesture and stylization of the characters re-enforce their inter-dependence. What quickly becomes clear is how rigidly stylized the characters are in terms of their sexuality - the women are both dressed and produced as highly sexualized bodies which fluctuate between different characteristics at times coquettish, graceful, funny, ditzy at times sophisticated and seductive but their gendered role is never in question rather it is accentuated in the musical role. The stories are constantly played out in terms though the language of love. (Quelle: www.alexandrabachzetsis.com) / jst
