Editorial October–December 2022
Dear audience, dear artists,
This time around, our season opening will not take place at our usual venue but at MAK’s columned main hall, where Doris Uhlich will stage GOO GOO MAK. Shortly afterwards, the interdisciplinary Tashweesh Festival will finally kick off after two years of preparation. An integral part of this festival is the dialogue between feminisms of the SWANA region and Europe, inviting you to discover new points of view for the first time in Vienna. Getting together and exchanging ideas are the festival’s main objectives.
This will be followed by a new edition of our Performance Passage at TQW Studios. For this, Andrea Maurer has invited artist Miriam Stoney, among many other artistic positions we are eager to see before the year is out. In the weeks and months ahead, we will show Samira Elagoz’s internationally renowned film performance Seek Bromance, which was awarded the Silver Lion at this year’s Venice Biennale. In cooperation with Wien Modern, we will present a joint production by Ligia Lewis and composer Mark Barden. Philipp Gehmacher, Katalin Erdődi and guests will host the two-week artistic and performative gathering TOGETHER THE PARTS at TQW Halle G. At the same time, Elizabeth Ward and Oleg Soulimenko will present some new group pieces. And – last but not least – Alix Eynaudi and TQW’s dance group PARASOL will bring the year to a close with a premiere at TQW Halle G.
