Cassandra has turned - 1

Performative Installation

Kareth Schaffer

In the frame of Open Spaces#3-2017

A spontaneous creation of prophecies.

Let us awaken Cassandra, ancient prophetess of uncomfortable truths. Dust her off, turn her around, hold her up to the light: let us find within her a living archive of potential futures, alternative pasts, major and minor catastrophes, and multiverse utopias. The constant stream of multilingual prophecy – spoken, sung, chanted, danced – washes the dust off of truth and lies, myths and legends, rhetorical gestures and interminable choreographies. A trio of oracles moves through time in the same way that the audience moves through space.

Concept, choreography: Kareth Schaffer | Performance: Ilya Noé, Kareth Schaffer, Lisa Vereertbrugghen | Music: Alessio Castellacci | Costume: Lena Mody | A production by Kareth Schaffer. »Cassandra has turned – 2« will take place 2018 in Sophiensaele.

In the frame of the dance campaign „Watch Me Dance“.
