          Tanz im AUGUST 2014 Alexandra Bachzetsis The Stages of Staging

          Dance

          2014 August 25 26 | 18.00 - 19.15
          Festsaal

          Suitable for Non-German Speakers

          It’s a romance, a romantic comedy, an action movie, a cover version …

          The Swiss choreographer Alexandra Bachzetsis incorporates performance, dance and visual arts in her work. Her main interest lies in the codes that govern gestures, both in everyday life and on stage.

          In the monochrome interior of a gym strewn with blue mats and balls, ten performers rehearse the production of a video trailer. Slowly their ‘real life’ begins to blur with the performance, as surreal athletic training turns into frantic trance-like dancing, and personal confessions transform into pop songs.

          How can one tell a story through moving images and the bodies that comprise them? Why stage privacy for an audience? Are we watching its construction, its failure or simply its trailer? Using film stills as research material, mats as projection surfaces for video close-ups and balls as props, the performance explores contemporary ideas of identity in terms of image-making, framing and athleticism.
