Alain Buffard


InstallationTanz im August

The installation can be visited like a regular exhibition anytime between 17:00 until 22:00.

„A metaphor dealing with the notion of cannibalism, here hijacked to be about clothing and ist presentation in performance; a way for the stylist Sébastien Meunier and myself, choreographer and dancer, to literally liquidate the presentation of the self through pieces of clothing and performance.“  Alain Buffard (1960-2013)

„Tanz im August would like to remember the outstanding choreographer, a true fighter, Alain Buffard as an exceptional artist of his generation. The loss is ours to live with.“ VS
