„untitled (look, look, come closer)“

Beschreibung

Together with composer Klaus Schedl, Austrian choreographer Christine Gaigg mounts an impressively focused and unflustered investigation into the viral video material distributed worldwide using the analog tools of performance, musical composition and text: a stage essay which expands our view of terror, violence and counter-violence while also leading into emptiness.

In common with many of Gaigg’s works, ‘untitled (look, look, come closer)’ is both conceptually and politically direct: on five tables surrounded by the audience, five performers calmly and precisely lay out pictures which they then dissolve: hints – helicopters, people, weapons, landscapes, perhaps – which become interpretations in our heads, while Klaus Schedl’s sound cloud growls, booms and rattles. Scenes arise and vanish and the more we focus, the more we lose focus. And like war, the pictures are always much too close and much too far away at the same time.
