Sommerszene 2018: June 5th to June 16th, 2018
The programme for Sommerszene 2018 offers a feast of stage arts from 5th to 16th June and presents thirteen productions, of which eleven will be seen in Austria for the first time. With Marta Górnicka, Sarah Vanhee and Gérald Kurdian, three apap artists present their projects in the festival.
Over the twelve days of Sommerszene a diverse programme awaits you:
The Danish artist Mette Ingvartsen brings two works to Salzburg. In the first she opens the festival with her acclaimed performance to come (extended), in which fifteen dancers illustrate the connections between sexuality, power and body politics in an exuberant and joyful manner. In her impressive 21 pornographies she examines the extent to which pornography has saturated our everyday lives. Indonesian star choreographer Eko Supriyanto makes his debut in Austria with the remarkable piece Balabala. Here he transposes the movement vocabulary of typically male war dances to five young women. An all-female cast also appears in Magnificat by apap artist Marta Górnicka. The Polish director works with a chorus of 23 that challenges traditional images of women. There are also three world premieres by local companies: at SEAD you can experience contemporary dance in its many forms in 100 invasions... bodies matter, Nayana Keshava Bhat investigates questions of memory and loss in The Inevitable Room and the collective gold extra will test your local knowledge in their participatory urban exploration game Stranger Home. Salzburg also plays a leading role in Lookout by the British artist Andy Field: from Hohensalzburg Fortress schoolchildren tell you their desires for the future. The work Unforetold by Belgian apap artist Sarah Vanhee also presents small beings on stage, seven children take you into their universe. In Houseparty Laia Fabre & Thomas Kasebacher cheerfully mingle fiction and reality. For the space of the gallery FÜNFZIGZWANZIG Georg Klüver-Pfandtner has conceived the queer scenario set (empty) space – Vom Leben, der Verzweiflung. The British company Stan’s Cafe transforms in Of All The People In All The World, which has been acclaimed worldwide, the Kollegienkirche with five tonnes of rice into a performative installation. And with Gérald Kurdian’s HOT BODIES – STAND
UP Sommerszene comes to a fitting end with a successful mix of music, text and film on the subject of sexual revolutions.
