Five Prèmieres plus one

With works by Dominik Grünbühel & Luke Baio, Jan Machacek, Anna Mendelssohn, Martina Ruhsam & Vlado G. Repnik, Rosalba Torres Guerrero and Doris Uhlich.

Under the title signed, sealed, delivered, the festival Wiener Festwochen in co-production with the Tanzquartier Wien is this year for the first time presenting a jointly curated dance and performance series. With five premières by artists and artist groups from Vienna and the Austrian première of Rosalba Torres Guerrero / les ballets C de la B, choreographic styles that have come to attention through their commitment and love of experimentation can now be seen on an international stage. Their different artistic approaches share an affinity to performance art: historically developed as a media hybrid at the intersection of theatre, dance and fine art, they do not describe the difference of artistic methods and categories, but – following the movement of the choreographic – take these to unusual positions, put themselves at risk and thereby open up new perspectives. The works, which are compact and accompanied by discussions in Hall G and in the Tanzquartier Wien Studios, touch on content questions, if it concerns the conditions of encounter, which they share as an unspoken but common interest: how do we turn to one another, how do we relate to one another? How much closeness and distance can this form of address take, how much rhetoric does it use and abuse – whether interpersonal, transmedial or political? What is our common interest, our divided in-between being? In solos or dialogically, the artists approach the question of communication – with themselves and the other, the future, the environment.
