cieLaroque/helene weinzierl: Think Fish
We see a couple. We get the feeling that what we are seeing actually is not in a perfect harmony. It seems to be exhausting, unhealthy, laborious, and somehow it appears to be unpleasant, the harmony is missing.
The absurdity reaches a peak when the structures of power collapse and dissolve due to missing or misunderstood communication. The two dancers show how different interpretations of a single theme or topic, approached from opposing attitudes and perceptions of understanding may lead to a completely absurd form of(mis)communication.
The Salzburg choreographer Helene Weinzierl studied dance in Paris, Munich and Salzburg. In 1995 she founded CieLaroque/helene weinzierl after dancing for over ten years professionally withtthe choreographers Bruno Genty, Jean-Yves Ginoux, Robert Wechsler, Hubert Lepka and Roxane Huilmand.
