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.
