ANTI Festival: Florentina Holzinger (AU): APOLLON

Contemporary dance

Six women tackle the neoliberalist cult of the body with all their performative brilliance and vicious physical virtuosity. The performance limbos between the aesthetics of an occult fitness-studio, a cyborg-bullfight and neoclassical ballet.

The work is part of Shortlist LIVE! Programme, and the artist is nominated for the ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art award.

Six women tackle the neoliberalist cult of the body with all their performative brilliance and vicious physical virtuosity. The performance limbos between the aesthetics of an occult fitness-studio, a cyborg-bullfight and neoclassical ballet.

Florentina Holzinger combines fin de siècle freakshow and 1960s live art, offering a new perspective on the rupture between high art and entertainment culture. Through this humorous and furious destruction of a classical narrative Holzinger addresses the myth of this supposedly perfect woman, the artist herself. These perfect women – what do they even want?

This performance contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing.
