Gisèle Vienne

Gisèle Vienne presents
Oct 29-Nov 1 at 7:30pm
Tickets start at $30; Select $15 seats available


Making her New York Live Arts debut, Gisèle Vienne, in collaboration with Dennis Cooper and KTL - Stephen O'Malley & Peter Rehberg, takes audience members on an emotionally stirring journey that blurs the lines between reality and fiction. A true hybrid dance-theater work set in the visually arresting scenic landscape of a snowy winter night, Kindertotenlieder takes inspiration from the “uncanny” as presented by Sigmund Freud. The work examines the representation of horrifying dread as something both familiar and alien, triggering a cathartic, ceremonial experience. 

Oct 29 - Stay Late Discussion: Creating Kindertotenlieder: Choreographers Trisha Bauman and Gisèle Vienne In Dialogue. 

Oct. 30 - Come Early Conversation: Collaborating Across Genres: Writer Dennis Cooper and Choreographer Gisèle Vienne in conversation.

This presentation of Kindertotenlieder is made possible, in part, by French American Cultural Exchange (FACE), with support from Institut français, The Florence Gould Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Company supported by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication – DRAC Alsace, the Alsace Region and the City of Strasbourg.
