Helter Skelter Vol. 2 - Dance Performance - 2005
Compañia Mouvoir - Dir. Stephanie Thiersch
Supported by video fragments, live music and spoken words in helterskelter Stephanie Thiersch composes a perfidious choreographic arrangement between tableaux vivants and dance with the surrounding medial images of every day about stereotypes of bequeathed and prevailing gender ideas that are set in our minds and bodies.
Five dancers explore the stage, create a playing field for themselves, discover hidden inner rooms, and make themselves visible through the looks of the others.
It seems as if the show itself – the initiation of an intimate setting of different gazes – becomes the theme of the play.
Stephanie Thiersch takes trivial multimedia images, poses and role-clichés of traditional and contemporary female iconography that always surround us.
With such images, she creates scenes which treat the borderline of inner and outside world, reality and illusion by employing video images, live-music and spoken text.
