Folk-s. Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

Alessandro Sciarroni
6 September 20.00, Railway history museum | 10 and 7 eur

In Folk-s Alessandro Sciarroni transforms the archaic, repetitive patterns and rhythmic structures of the Bavarian-Austrian folkdance Schuhplattler into in-depth and ironic survey of the strictly regulated traditional dance. Liberated from its context and mechanically repeated it turns into hypnotic experience that explores the true nature of collaboration between the artist and the spectator. Impressive, intelligent and open-ended, it is totally exhausting for the dancers and absolutely exhilarating for the audience. Both spectators and dancers can leave the show at any time without the rights to return. Folk-s is the first part of Sciarroni’s trilogy Will you still love me tomorrow? that aims to intensify the vulnerability and resilience of bodies.
