Doris Uhlich + Michael Turinsky (Vienne)
12 + 13 avr., 20h
North American première
Acclaimed Austrian choreographer and performer Doris Uhlich teams up with the formidable Michael Turinsky for a techno-thumping, energetic state-making, wheelchair-lifting repartee that doubles as an adventure into the borderlands of attachment and rapture. “We are looking for movement that charges the body up like a battery.” Affirmative, frictional, and contagious in equal parts, Ravemachine draws on the beats and atmospheres of techno to explore the meeting between two very different bodies, a form of dance-as-research that opens up a singular space of encounter.
Doris Uhlich studied pedagogics for contemporary dance at the Conservatory of Vienna. Her choreographies take up the transmission of energetic states in bodies and space. A teacher at Max Reinhardt Seminar, Uhlich tours widely and recently gave her “more than naked” workshop at Studio 303 in Montreal. Living with a disability, Michael Turinsky lives and works as a theoretician, choreographer and performer in Vienna.
