GESICHT / FACE
Collaborative work by Marie Alexis, Lyn Bentschik and Rebecca Gisler
2019, Dance Performance with spoken text
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.
Premiered at the vernissage of Glitter, a queer literature magazine in Zürich, 2019.
