Private Song
by Alexandra Bachzetsis

JUL
10–13
Performance
10 pm
Henschel-Hallen, Wolfhager Straße 109, Kassel

Private Song proposes framing as a perceptual strategy for questioning, underlining, or neutralizing the spectator’s relation to moving bodies on stage. Popular rebetiko songs from the 1940s and 1950s composed by Giannis Papaioannou, Vassilis Tsitsanis, and Giorgos Mitsakis are introduced within the piece—not as a narrative motif but as a means of juxtaposing the singular voices and codified gestures coming from oriental and modern dance as well as wrestling, Hollywood gender models, and the pictorial history of representations of love and battle. Through these acts of reframing, Private Song produces a phantasmic staging, working as a device for channeling perception and affect that ultimately transforms the position of the viewer.

Performed by: Alexandra Bachzetsis, Sotiris Vassiliou, and Thibault Lac

Co-produced by Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen, Haarlem, Volksbühne, Berlin and Schering Stiftung, Berlin


Tickets: 10 € / 2 € with valid documenta 14 ticket; available at the documenta 14 points of sale and at the door
