A Franco-Austrian artist, Gisèle Vienne’s background covers music, philosophy and puppeteering, while her dance work has seen her explore the crimes of a serial killer, place athletes in a forest and ghosts on an ice rink. Crowd, a piece for 15 dancers, delves into the collective euphoria of a committed party crowd and delivers a painstaking dissection of the dark side within us and our need for moments of love, violence and intimacy. It represents a culminating point in Vienne’s trajectory, her healthy disrespect for the different artistic practices and a restoring to the stage its unique cathartic power.
