Programme for Sat 29. Sep. 2012:
CIS BIERINCKX (BE) / TANZQUARTIER WIEN

IT IS NOT (A) FAIR

Première

A group of artists will occupy the Tanzquartier Wien stage with movement, image and text in order to give thought and form on expressions of resistance. The new world order, the economical crisis, the growth of populism and extremism, the media manipulation, homophobia and racial expulsion, hearths of war, the politicizing and marketization of the arts are an unsettling reality.

How can art and artist contribute to awareness and how to provide alternatives to it? These questions will continue to return throughout the Tanzquartier Wien season 2012/13.

IT IS NOT (A) FAIR will be an ideal prologue to it bringing an international group of artists and theatre director Cis Bierinckx together raising question of urgency and tackling rusted systems in order to analyze contemporary society and to suggest possibilities. Tanzquartier Wien during this opening will be an agora, a public space inviting audience and artists for common moments of performance, reflection and exchange.
