Florentina Holzinger - Tanz

PEIRAIOS 260 - (Δ)


Florentina Holzinger


How can the cult of beauty inherent in the tradition of dance be reconciled with the cruelty to which female bodies are exposed through this form of art? Third part of a trilogy about body as a spectacle and its disciplining, TANZ by Austrian Florentina Holzinger focuses on the legacy of classical dance.

Performers between the ages of twenty and eighty, under the direction of the first ballerina to dance Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring naked, back in 1972, undergo rigorous training in a ballet d'action. In an operatic setting, the frantic quest for perfection in an ephemeral world comes alive through brutal, parodic images.

Viewer discretion is advised: The performance contains scenes of nudity, self-harm acts, and stroboscopic effects.
