Vienna based Japanese artist Michikazu Matsune is known for his absurdly poetic and notably realistic performances that reflect our being in today's globalized world. His new work All Together, developed as a trio with performers Frans Poelstra and Elizabeth Ward, connects what is absent to what is present and those who are not here to those who are here.
The three performers go through names of people who are connected to them in one way or another. It might be one of their brothers or a first-love. It might be Jérôme and Ko - star-artists with whom they had curious encounters in the past, Donna and Karl - the philosophers, or Bob and Patty - the revolutionaries. They talk about them, dedicate a dance to them and sometimes become them...
Matsune, Poelstra and Ward bring together the imaginative and the real, the personal and the universal. No matter if we love or hate one another, as a matter of fact, fortunately or unfortunately, whether you are here or not, we all belong together.
