“Movements in public spaces – how small must they be in order not to be recognised as performance?” To answer this question, over five years, 12 choreographers have been invited to test their movement sequences at places not linked to the term “performance”: a tram-stop shelter in front of the Vienna National Opera happened to be the perfect place. The contributions were documented on video, some re-enactments were combined to form live performances: in the black box of the theatre and white cube of galleries fine movements are very well (very) visible..
The former GENERALI FOUNDATION hall with its V-shaped structure provided unique perspectives:
Martina Ruhsam´s contribution (2011) was re-enacted alongside the wall of the main hall: the video shows three shots with different perspectives.
