A demonic forest. In the forest are three protagonists: an ambitious gymnast striving for perfection, her authoritarian trainer, and a rock star with a pre-disposition for self-destruction. And the disquieting certainty that something terrible will happen.


The French choreographer, dancer, and puppeteer Gisèlle Vienne retells big, archetypical stories for our times with the author Dennis Cooper and the musicians Stephen O'Malley and Peter Rehberg. She's a master of the uncanny, fascinated by the ambivalence of beauty between order and destruction, Apollo and Dionysus. The hyperrealistic forest becomes a symbolic space, which provokes an unsettling, nightmarish desire. A scary and beautiful synthesis of the arts: visual arts, performance, dance und music.


Artist talk:

November 30th,

Moderation: Katja Schneider (LMU München)
