Location: TQW / Halle G

The worst thing about this inevitable meeting between two beings is to experience the sudden violence of a lightning bolt and fall fatally and hopelessly in love...and to be consumes with desire to the point of wanting to die (Dave St.-Pierre)


The Canadian choreographer Dave St-Pierre is regarded as someone obsessed with the body. As a skilled provocateur, he creates images of movement that irritate but also touch his audience - sensitive, wild, entertaining and ruthless. In his new creation the last part of his celebrated trilogy on human utopias can also be seen at the Tanzquartier Wien. In a strictly reduced set with few props, the \"enfant terrible\" of the dance scene shows an emotional play of opposites: an outline of society, its superficiality and its deficiencies; a work about humans themselves, in which he drives his 25, mostly naked dancers and his themes over the pain threshold to the extreme and makes the immediacy of the body experienceable in its full force.
