05 MAY - 06 MAY 2023
The Box, Freespace
With Crowd, Gisèle Vienne continues her exploration of desire and the balance of power that determine interactions within a group of individuals, while questioning the singularity of each individuality. The identity of Dennis Cooper's characters is as much outlined as it is erased, gradually dissolved by the crowd, whose slowness contrasts with its latent power. The electronic musical mix contributes to a hypnotic distortion of time, placing the spectator on the border between dream and rave trance.
A chance to hear the artists talk about their work, which will take place in the auditorium following the performance on May 6.
The running time of the performance is approximately 1 hour 25 minutes without intermission.
This programme is part of "Freespace Dance 2023" presented by Freespace.
Note: A pre-show participatory physical introduction session (in Cantonese) introducing related choreographic concepts and movements is available on 6 May (7:00pm–7:30pm). This session is open to ticket holders only. Please register here.
