The new brut format Aperitivo combines a dramaturge’s introduction into an upcoming performance with a door-opener to meet its neighbours. Seestadt residents invite choreographer Ingri Fiksdal and her team as well as interested members of the brut audience to their homes for a chat. Drinks and snacks are served as light is shone on the opening performance Diorama and the work of Ingri Fiksdal while artists, the audience and neighbours get the chance to exchange views on the project and the quarter before it’s time to walk to the lake and see the performance.
Free admission, voluntary donations are accepted for drinks. The exact meeting place will be revealed upon registration.
To open brut’s new season, Norwegian choreographer Ingri Fiksdal will bring the panoramic version of her impressive performance series Diorama to Seestadt Aspern after successfully showing it around the world. Onto to the scenic backdrop of the lake at sunset Diorama paints a meditative live scenery made of bodies and objects that constantly changes through movement, light and sound, allowing its spectators to feel very acutely the passing of time and the evolvement of the landscape.
The pieces by Norwegian artist Ingri Fiksdal are characterised by their formal aesthetic and their fusion of dance, sound, light and costumes. Fiksdal’s projects are designed to shift their audiences’ state of mind and to provoke unforeseen experiences. Her works tour the world; her previous appearances in the brut programme include the site-specific performance Night Tripper (2012/13) and the stage piece HOODS (imagetanz 2015).
