Dance House Helsinki & Helsinki Festival: Crowd Workshop
DANCE HOUSE HELSINKI AND HELSINKI FESTIVAL: A WORKSHOP BASED ON GISÈLE VIENNE’S PIECE CROWD
31.8.-1.9.2019, Balanssi Studio, Cable Factory
The program of Helsinki Festival is full of intriguing performing arts pieces. One of them is Gisèle Vienne’s Crowd that brings 15 dancers on stage for a rave party between dream and reality. Besides the performances, Vienne’s group will be guiding a two-day workshop for dance professionals and advanced dancers.
Gisèle Vienne is a Franco-Austrian artist, choreographer and director who creates ambitious stage pieces that defy categorisations and often explore humanity in its multiple aspects. Vienne’s piece Crowd considers rave parties as a modern ritual and strips bare the entire spectrum of human emotions – accompanied by a playlist covering 30 years of electronic music history curated by Peter Rehberg.
The two-day workshop Between motion and cinematographic writing: a new choreographic language offers an excellent possibility to discover Vienne’s work through the materials of Crowd: stillness, living picture, still motion and disassembled movement.
The workshop is aimed for professional and advanced dancers. And it is guided by Sylvain Decloitre and Rémi Hollant.
