«Home is…the animal culture of everyday life»

Элен Рейн, Ирис Хейльригель : Ширяево

A dancetheatreperformance by Ellen Rein and Iris Hellriegel
Place: Repin Museum, Shiryaevo


Performing modern living in a home with a pet.
The interest is on showing the relationship between a human being and his cat especially as a result of feeling lonely in a highly industrialized and rich country. Different psychological aspects of the relationship will be shown: the cat “Pussy” as a substitute for a partner, a child, a delight of the eyes and wild nature. The cat symbolizes sensuality, sexuality and freedom. Human activities in a home are combined with cat movements influenced by contemporary dance. The alienated outfits are leaned on Pop Art.

«Dance and politics.

There's no other art form which is so narrowly associated with simultaneousness (modern, post modern, contemporarily) and freedom like dance. The dance as an art form is always looked as a part by democratic societies. It is the art form par excellanze of the first world. It is not astonishing that the dance of the non-democratic societies is not mentioned in the official historiography of the contemporary dance. Instead, there was folk dance, ballet and military parades - all forms of predemocratic regimes. We look at dance methods in Russia as a strategy to break through social choreography, and will analyze under this aspect different education models and projects which translate artistic practise into the political or introduce in the academy of arts.»
