Festwochen reframed: Boris Nikitin, Kukuruz Quartett - 24 BILDER PRO SEKUNDE

Festwochen reframed: Boris Nikitin, Kukuruz Quartett - 24 BILDER PRO SEKUNDE

Like Versuch über das Sterben (Attempt on Dying), Boris Nikitin’s new work 24 Bilder pro Sekunde (24 frames per second) is based on his reflections on vulnerability, not as a shortcoming, but as an ability. This time he swaps words for music and dance. When bodies are no longer under control, motion becomes random.

Festwochen reframed: Bernhard Gander, Ensemble Modern / Oren Ambarchi, Attila Csihar, Stephen O’Malley - OOZING EARTH / GRAVETEMPLE

In his piece, Gander grapples with primal, elemental forces and humankind’s struggle against Nature. The title alone evokes images of an agonising, bleeding planet in its death throes, rearing up one final time.

Festwochen reframed: Susanne Kennedy, Markus Selg - ULTRAWORLD

Festwochen reframed: Susanne Kennedy, Markus Selg - ULTRAWORLD

Based on the rhythm of the creation narrative, Ultraworld addresses the question of how there can be anything out of nothing? Characters thrust into the (virtual) world become caught up in recurring configurations and looped conversations. Kennedy triggers the collapse of time in its forward progress within a sci-fi setting designed by visual artist Markus Selg.
