Anne Imhof & Eliza Douglas
€18 / €15
Anne Imhof has emerged as one of the most provocative and pioneering voices of her generation. Her work is based on atmospheric environments, inhabited by groups of collaborators to give form to a sense of alienation and detachment that increasingly shapes our society. For the Kunstenfestivaldesarts, and her first presentation in Belgium, she conceived a new work in the form of a concert performance. It is a project written together with Eliza Douglas, and linked to previous performances, such as Angst, Sex and Faust, with which she was awarded with the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale. In this new project Anne Imhof and Eliza Douglas oscillate between the music and the choreography, between the acoustic documentation and the gestures. Pain and pleasure, hope and desperation, life and death, male and female: the concert performance deals with the fluidity between these forces, too often presented as irreconcilable, as Imhof and her collaborators continuously shift between them and merge what is presented as incompatible.
