CieLAROQUE/Helene Weinzierl thrilled audiences at Sommerszene 2021 with Rhythmus und Rausch on the sculpture terrace at the Museum der Moderne. This year, the company will perform at a number of venues across the city, offering a structured improvisation that the audience can help to create. The audience’s musical requests and some preset structures of movement form the starting point for the dance, but the audience then plays a key role in deciding how the choreography develops from there. Here the dancers’ contemplative qualities play as significant a part as their technical knowledge of improvisation techniques. In a fascinating way, HEAR AND NOW successfully combines virtuoso choreography, the spontaneity of the moment and the alertness of the performers with the powerful movement and dance of the ensemble.

Helene Weinzierl founded CieLAROQUE, one of the Austrian dance scene’s most popular touring companies, in 1995. Her choreographic, interdisciplinary works frequently explore socially and politically relevant topics. Her pieces, which are noted for their clear and intense language of movement, have been awarded numerous international prizes.
