"Ladies and gentlemen, herewith I would like to invite you to WALZ'R, a performance about HORROR and GRACE, mechanical torture and sex. There will be rare reenactments of tendentious dances from the 1920's, but also glamorous kisses and harsh noise, the Frankenstein original soundtrack and Liszt. Please join us in this swirl of death and fantasy."
Waltz, considered as a matter - a physical object, holds within its own structure, its own properties, points of resistance and frailties, an intrinsic ability to transform into something else.
First initiated in 2009 at the Kunstfest Weimar, choreographer Jenny Beyer and sound artist Jassem Hindi decided to pursue their project, using waltz as a formal and a contextual tool, a raw material for their practice, a background noise to their collaboration.
