Julia Müllner – gathering bacteria in my carrier bag

As part of brut’s Handle with care series, Julia Müllner invites audiences for a studio visit to show bits of her new solo project. In her current work, the Austrian dancer deals with fermentation, which is a form of microbial transformation and preservation. The process of fermentation becomes a performance exploring what microbes can teach us about how to live together.

------------------------------------

Tanja Erhart & Katharina Senk – j_e_n_g_a

j_e_n_g_a is a choreography for two crutches and two dancers, Katharina Senk and Tanja Erhart. Pursuing a feminist approach, the two dancers explore those spaces in_between notions of being which they consider novel ways of dealing with dis_ability, queer animation of objects and the creation of new body subjectivities. As part of the Handle with careseries, the performers open the creation process of j_e_n_g_a, allowing studio visitors initial glimpses.

Julia Müllner – gathering bacteria in my carrier bag 

Julia Müllner’s carrier bag becomes a container for knowledge and nonsense to experiment with processes of transformation. Ideas, sketches and lines of thought accumulate like bacteria and demand care. SCOBY the mother bacterium gets settled, grows, transforms and forms ties. There is a symbolic value in the gentle care of organisms that allows us to canvass ideas on how to live together – a vast group of themes that are approached on a microscopic level. What metaphoric answers hide in the symbiosis of fungal cultures and nutrients? How can a relationship grow without any hierarchies? In addition to this performative approach, there will be a printed booklet to preserve the entire process for eternity.

Julia Müllner works as a choreographer, performer and graphic designer. She studied dance and choreography and the Danish National School of Performing Arts in Copenhagen and the Anton Bruckner Privat University in Linz, Austria. Since autumn 2019, she has been living in Vienna, where she was part of Ingri Fiksdal’s piece DIORAMA that opened the 2019/20 brut season. She is also a recipient of the training scholarship at Tanzquartier Wien and works in various collaborations as well as on solo projects.

 

Tanja Erhart & Katharina Senk – j_e_n_g_a

Tanja, Katharina and the audience turn the crutches into social connectors, sensual interfaces and animated dance partners, diversifying ways of experiencing each other through moved and moving bodies, a feminist gaze and the “aesthetics of access”.

Tanja Erhart, London-based Austrian, identifies as a disabled dancer and cultural anthropologist. She performed in pieces by the Candoco Dance Company, Claire Cunningham, Michael Turinsky and many more. Tanja champions individually accessible dance training, teaches and performs at several events. Her current interest is her own wellbeing as she analyses what it means to live in interdependence and to explore the movement languages of her three different physicalities: with crutches, with wheel-chair and without any of her mobility tools.

 

 

BEATE
brut’s very own audience club

BEATE stands for BRUT’S ENGAGED AUDIENCE as THEATRE EXPERTS. It sounds complicated, but it’s actually very simple. At BEATE, brut’s audience club, committed brut visitors get a particularly close look at artistic and administrative processes, turning over time into a group of experts capable of adding new points of view to brut’s diverse programme. In regular gatherings over the entire season, BEATE visits rehearsals, showings and performances, discusses and reflects on them, talks to artists and experts and writes pieces for the online magazine.

For imagetanz 2020, the group was given the important special assignment to choose two acts for the programme of the Handle with Care series. The members visited showings throughout the season and made proposals of their own before deciding in a final vote that the duo Tanja Erhart & Katharina Senk as well as artist Julia Müllner should be invited to present showings during the imagetanz 2020 instalments of Handle with Care.

The audience club BEATE is an initiative in the frame of Be SpectACTive!
Be SpectACTive! is a large-scale European cooperation project – co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union – which operates in performing arts through artistic productions and participatory practices aimed at involving the citizens and spectators in creative and organizative processes. Its members are European festivals, theatres, cultural organisations, universities and a research center.
