Lecture-performance Muzeum Susch

‘Cranky Interventions. Dance and visual arts in choreographic dialogue’

Saturday / 21.05
14.00 / Auditorium
in frames of MS Performance Weekend

During their lecture-performance, Eszter Gál, Michiel Keuper, and Peter Pleyer will dance, talk and visually compose in Muzeum Susch’s auditorium along the lines of their history and the research into ‘Terrestrial Transit’ that will focus on how dance and choreography are connected to forms of protest in Hungary and Poland before 1989, and how the work of postmodern dance can be a form of protest in the contemporary crisis – a crisis of Health, of Capitalism and War.

The interdisciplinary ensemble Cranky Bodies a/company is characterised by the close interweaving of choreographic and sculptural composition, which is constantly renegotiated with the help of structured improvisation. This negotiation process is continued in public, urban space: The ensemble explores the effect of the surrounding architectural structure of the town hall forecourt on its own network of relationships between dance and transitional sculptures.
