Swiss choreographer Alexandra Bachzetsis has been exploring the various provinces and domains of ‘mainstream’ popular culture – hip-hop, fashion, strip-tease, movies – and extracted the signature vignettes and ensemble pieces from it that have come to define her choreographic, performative practice.
 
Inspired by Diego Velázquez’s seminal rendition of Venus at her Mirror (1599-1600), From A to B via C opens with three bodies moving from and towards each other, acting as each other’s mirror image – mediated and unsynchronized. Complex scenes of nudity, gazing and instructional scores reflect on our common desire to communicate our own identity through the identities of others.
 
Choreographer: Alexandra Bachzetsis
Dancers: Alexandra Bachzetsis, Anne Pajunen and Gabriel Schenker
Research Curator: Hendrik Folkerts
Costume Design: Cosima Gadient
Sound Design: Tobias Koch and Dan Solbach

“In her new work, the Swiss choreographer turns the stage into a training and instruction room … where the levels shift as constantly as the linguistic forms.”
– Der Sonntag (Vienna)
