HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiermark has organized a dance performance as part of the exhibition Europe: Ancient Future.
Ann-Kathrin Adam and Lucie Horná, both dancers of the Opera Graz, will use the exhibition space for an improvised, dance commentary and will make the works, as well as the architecture of the space, appear once again in a different and dynamic way. The space will be rethought: How can we perceive art through our bodies? How do visual positions interact with the medium of dance?
Music recording: Balanescu Quartet.
Text: “If” by Rudyard Kipling.
