In an era of fake news and post-truths Störlaut searches for a form of non-verbal expression – real, direct and emotional. In a speculative, futuristic way this sound dance solo performance reinterprets the sound dances of Valeska Gert, a Berlin grotesque dancer of the politically unstable 1920s. Gert is considered to be the first sound dancer in the world. Jule Flierl completely absorbs her sound dances, roars, cackles, whimpers and squeaks, an articulation beyond today’s word capsules.

JULE FLIERL wants to shake up the relationship between seeing and hearing: What you see is not always what you hear, and what you hear is not always what you see. Jule is fascinated by how notions of the body change specific to context and that the voice as a technology of the self is always finding new relationships to the body. Jule graduated from SEAD-Salzburg, EXERCE Montpellier and is continuously studying the "Lichtenberg Method". As a dancer she has worked with Meg Stuart, Tino Sehgal, Martin Nachbar, Gintersdorfer/Klassen and Anna Nowicka among others.
