This is a project about rethinking and reinventing choreographic subjects. The project imagines itself as a performance, in which the body is subtracted from the choreography, in which the body has disappeared and the choreography happens inside the concrete materiality of the stage.
The project aims at activating the affective and semantic potential of the materiality of the theatre space.
Franziska Aigner invited Vienna based visual artist and light designer Mathias Windelberg and choreographer/dancer Sirah Foighel Brutmann to join her on this artistic journey.
They embark in December 2010, working for a total of three months to formulate an aesthetic experience for these described desires, problems, interests and urges. The aim is to create a stage-performance for an audience to be experienced through audio-visual as well as through tactile perception. We will work on formats of performance that operate both affectively as well as semantically, proposing an activating, complex, aesthetic, dynamic and affective theatre experience.
