+++ Cancelled +++
The intimate setting of Café Sperl, located at Gumpendorfer Straße 11, 1060 Vienna, will give a selected group of interested visitors (only four people for now) the opportunity to get to know the artists, to chat, have a meal and drinks together – all in a safe environment and with the required social distancing in place. As TQW’s guest, you can either choose between cake (our personal recommendation is the Zwetschkenfleck – a kind of plum tart) or Knödel mit Ei (dumplings and egg) and a drink.
Our guest on 12 December will be Sorour Darabi, who will be showing Mowgli at TQW.
Please register until 5 December via e-mail to Theresa Rauter firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter your name, age and occupation and write us a few lines why you would like to meet Sorour Darabi in person.
is a self-taught Iranian artist who live and work between Paris and Berlin. Working actively in Iran, they were a part of the underground organisation ICCD, whose festival Untimely (Teheran) presented Darabi’s work prior to their departure for France. During their studies at the CCN de Montpellier, they created the solo piece Subject to Change, a performance that questions transformation with regards to time and one’s cohabitation with an environment.
In 2016, they created Farci.e, a solo piece dealing with notions of language, gender identity and sexuality, presented at the Festival Montpellier Danse. In 2018, they created Savušun, an ode to affect, to vulnerability and to beings who are affected, which deals with questions of grief, fear, and suffering and which was inspired by the mourning ceremonies of the Muharram. The last two pieces were presented at Wiener Festwochen in 2019. In addition to their work on Mowgli, Sorour Darabi also work on their new production Natural Drama, co-produced by Tanzquartier Wien.
