Introducing her new stage series, Stefanie Sourial distils the essence out of the last four-hundred years of European colonial history and packs it into a fluent sixty-minute performance. Colonial Cocktail is a boomerang-like swing, tracking the origins of spirits and other currently trending alcoholic drinks and returning to the present, spicy on the tongue and bitter in the finish.

Stefanie Sourial – Colonial Cocktail: Aperitivo

There will be an artist talk following the show on May 13th.

Every night, there is highly concentrated history flowing in Vienna’s bars, much of it originating in Europe’s colonial history. But who pays attention to their drink’s history while enjoying it? Using performance and narration, Stefanie Sourial reveals the colonial ties associated with spirit-based beverages and the effects they have on our current society. In doing so, she is accompanied by varying guests from different fields of art. How did today’s trending drinks come into existence? How do spirits influence our lives? Why is it political to drink uhudler wine?

Complex colonial issues, addressed in the intimate setting of a bar and mixed with a history of violence in diverse shots from older and more recent vintages, will unfold a bittersweet bouquet. The traces of history Stefanie Sourial shows us using examples of ever-present alcohol will result in unexpected discoveries in our immediate surroundings.

Stefanie Sourial works as a performance artist in Vienna, London and Bristol and teaches performance art at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. In 2007, she graduated from the International Jacques Lecoq School for performance and directing in Paris. She has been creating her own shows since 2009, some of which include FREAK (2015), was part of the collective Club Burlesque Brutal (2009–2015) and collaborates with the prize-winning London company Theatre Ad Infinitum as well as with artists in Vienna such as Barbis Ruder, Carola Dertnig, Denice Bourbon, Denise Kottlett, Gin Müller, Katrina Daschner, Katharina Mückstein, Michikazu Matsune, Mira Lu Kovacs, the Nesterval collective, Veza Fernández and Sophie Stockinger.

Hyo Lee was born in Seoul, South Korea, in 1983. She lives and works as a part-time artist and full-time bartender in Vienna. Lee studied photography and video installation at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. She has performed in Pfauenloch (2018), Pferdebusen (2017), Perlenmeere (2016), Powder Placenta (2015), Parole Rosette (2012), Flaming Flamingos (2011) by Katrina Daschner and Endlich wird die Arbeit knapp! as part of Wienwoche 2017 (performances at FLUC in 2017 und Urania in 2018).
