GESICHT / FACE 

2019

Dance Performance with spoken text

20'

 

Collaborative work by Marie Alexis, Lyn Bentschik and Rebecca Gisler

Gesicht (Face) is a duo dance performance by Marie Alexis and Lyn Bentschik, based on a poem written by Rebecca Gisler. 

The two bodies try to meet in the impossible positions described in the poem - while constantly speeding up so the impossible meeting moves from a sensitive encounter to a brutal (but still playful) crash.
