Der letzte Schrei - 2. Edition - artists are alive

Choreography: Ben J. Riepe

Fashion: the word evokes beauty and artificiality, blossoming and decay. Ephemeral as it is, it can even warn us of death. This at least is Ben J. Riepe’s artistic hypothesis for his cyclical work “All the Rage“, the undertitle to the second edition of which is called “artists are alive”. The choreographer has a reputation for being a cool aesthete and this work is no exception, for more than ever he strains all the boundaries of form. His choreography is notable for its provocative poetry somewhere between drama and irony, rooted on the borders of bodies and sculpture, space and movement, dance, music and the pictorial arts.

This work was commissioned to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the NRW Arts Foundation In cooperation with the internationale tanzmesse and the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf.
