FREE ADMISSION TO THE EXHIBITION FOR VISITORS OF TANZ BREMEN

"My body is like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don't think about it, I just have it.” – the Canadian Kenji Ouellet, awarded the Videokunst Förderpreis Bremen, is dedicated to the world of ballet. His video installation In dog years I'm dead accompanies a young female dancer impressively commenting on her strenuous rehearsals. Quotes by famous personalities and international choreographers draw an equally fascinating and contradictory picture. A great amount of self-discipline, artistic high performance, relentless pressure to perform and daily agonies. Between cliché and reality, art and dance, essential things are at issue: identity, body and passion. 

 

In addition to further works by the main award-winner Kenji Ouellet , the most recent video productions of the artists’ duo Hassan Sheidaei/Farzia Fallah are on view.
