Im Rahmen von Sacre 100

Le sacre du printemps – a haptic rite


A non-visual, haptic choreography that is performed directly on the body of the visitor. Strongly related to, but not always rooted in Stravinsky’s music, the piece builds on a vocabulary developed in a row of previous performances for the touch sense. Some of the previous work explored cross-sensory sound/touch relationships. The visitors are blindfolded, not to establish a power relationship but in order to produce a concentration on other sense modalities. The guest is not moving actively, concentrating instead on his or her subjective bodily sensations and architecture. The haptic score offers both a compositional structure and immediate bodily experience (rather than kinaesthetic empathy.)

Each Session of Kenji Ouellet and Anna-Luella Zahner takes 30 minutes. Only 2 people can participate at a time. Therefore, a registration beforehand is necessary. To register call 030.25900427 or go directly to the box office at HAU2 (opening hours Mon–Sat 15:00–19:00). Participation is only possible in combination with a ticket for "Sacre 100".
