The Handle with Care format invites inviting audiences and colleagues to see initial sketches and talks, opens rehearsal processes and creates room for dialogue and exchange. Artists try out parts of their works in front of a limited audience in order to receive feedback, turning the spectactors into accomplices. During this year’s imagetanz festival, there will be three editions of Handle with Care: On March 11th and 13th, Hugo Le Brigand will show excerpts of his new solo The Rise of Robyn.
In his current artistic research, performer Hugo Le Brigand deals with new possibilities of identification. Using his alter ego Robyn, he tries to scrutinise normative education, inherited traditions and internalised social norms. In the process, Robyn discovers a surprising connection to the anus as an excluded part of the body, raising the question how a body with all its biographies could be re-interpreted and what strategies could be used to express one’s own nonconformist identity within society.
Vienna-based French performance artist Hugo Le Brigand studied at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD). In addition to devising his own performances, he also collaborated with artists such as Doris Uhlich, Willi Dorner, Simone Forti, Eyal Bromberg and Helene Weinzierl.
