Impulstanz 2019: FRÉDÉRIC GIES (SE/FR) - WALK + TALK
• Days with event
Club culture is part of his life, ecstasy is an element of the default states of his mind, and his body can become quite provocative. French-born dancer and choreographer Frédéric Gies was shaped by ballet, the artistic dynamics of French contemporary dance of the 1980s, and, above all, the artistic energy and elegance of Dominique Bagouet who died of AIDS in 1992. He has devoted himself to the glorious exhilaration of 21st-century subculture: his glamour is political, his dancing gives the audience an opportunity to explore new experiences. For this solo, the now Swedish techno dancer uses the performance-lecture format walk + talk, invented by renowned Austrian choreographer Philipp Gehmacher, for the second time. He shares his most formative pieces, key moments and most exciting encounters since the early 1990s with the audience.
