To Sing The Wind, Pipes And Bones, A Dance Choral
For their second piece, the five PARASOL participants – Alex Bailey, Camilla Schielin, Júlia Rúbies Subirós, Shahrzad Nazarpour, Theresa Scheinecker – will team up with choreographer Alix Eynaudi, sound designer Paul Kotal and musician Han-Gyeol Lie to create a speculative register of songs and dances. Evoking a crowded tableau vivant of our present time, this piece will never fully explain the origins of complex concepts, even if we might understand them (or not). Based on the idea of a library, this piece will borrow and gather words, change their meaning aimlessly and draw on the shades of their endings while it also rocks their songs and dances their undergrowth.
dances, works and writes between craft & chaos in a (most of the time) joyful mess. She doesn’t work alone; any event, research, or invitation is an alibi to spend time with accomplices, a mesh of friendships scintillating under skins, a stirring of full-of-wonder support. She specialises in (deep) choreographic hanging out sessions. She opened the 2021/22 with her piece BRUNO.
Starting in 2022, two choreographers – this year’s are Ian Kaler and Alix Eynaudi – will continuously work with a select group of five young dancers on a TQW Halle G production for three months each year. Further training will complement the artistic practice, and artists will be embedded in TQW’s diverse programme of productions, theory lectures and body & performance practices. A hybrid artistic – and paid – training project for the dance scene in Vienna and beyond, but also a mobile network of relations, an experimental setting with a focus on the vital needs of ensemble productions: solidarity, collective experience, conviviality.
