PLEASE NOTE: Performance starts at 19:30!
Three performances in one evening. Austrian chivalry in full body armor, a French slow-motion dream of magical light and dark, and gloomy Norwegian poetry translated into a explosive performance. New European talents selected by Aerowaves and Bora Bora.
CHIVALRY IS DEAD
When two men take the Y out of irony, all they are left with is iron.
Alexander Deutinger & Alexander Gottfarb, in full body armour, question the prevalence of knightly valour and blood-spattered fantasy in TV and gaming. No horse, no damsels, no enemies – how can they keep up their medieval ideals of morals and manliness now? Must chivalry come to a clanking halt? (40 min.)
A co-production between Kunstverein Archipelago, Performanceinitiative 22 Graz and WUK performing arts Vienna. Supported by Kulturamt der Stadt Wien, Stadt Graz Kultur, Kultur Land Steiermark, Bundeskanzleramt Österreich and The Place London.
Here is a body plucked out of the laws of physics, on a stage where space and time are troubled. By controlling the lighting during the performance, the character creates a dreamlike state. Perhaps he exists on the brink of life and death. Perhaps there are several stories in the one body. Each gesture becomes intensely poetic in this mysterious piece, where our perception of a body moving on stage is endlessly manipulated. (30 min.)
La Cie 14:20 is supported by Ville de Rouen, le Département de la Seine-Maritime, Région Haute-Normandie and DRAC Haute-Normandie.
JORDJENTA (SOIL GIRL)
Secret rooms and the dark side of the human mind inspire this visually arresting trio. Three young women look for something tangible and real. They create a world as disturbing as it is funny. Jordjenta launches itself onto the stage with gale-force energy and a lust for experimental tearing-it-up. Death is the most normal thing that could happen.
The performance is inspired by Maria Tryti Vennerød's poem "Jordjenta". (52 min.)
Co-produced by Black Box Theatre, Supported by The Norwegian Arts Council, FFUK and FFLOB.
