WAITING LIST/REMAINING TICKETS AT THE BOXOFFICE
Rave and techno beats, sheer ecstasy and a powered wheel chair mutating into a rave machine. Doris Uhlich samples, amplifies and translates the mechanically induced sound of her partner’s wheel chair into heavy basslines, thus creating an energy capturing the physically disabled dancer and choreographer Michael Turinsky until his wheel chair becomes a rave machine which multiplies every movement and visualizes each beat through the body. Since her production „more than naked“, Vienna- based Uhlich is looking for movements in which energy triumphs over form, thought, rules and norms. Yet the center of this work is the combination of human being and machine, not the dancer’s non-corresponding to norm, his physical limitation nor is it an attempt of inclusion.
