eXplore dance festival :: I DID ONCE A PIECE… (WALK + TALK) >> Saturday, October 2nd, 18h30, Round Hall

How can you articulate or describe commands, emotions and images that suddenly occur to you while you are dancing? What wonderful fantasies cause the body to move? What kind of thought and knowledge is created by movement – or is indeed only possible through movement? How exciting is it to stride across a stage? Can the energy of dance be expressed in words?
This lecture performance, in which Milli Bitterli explores the transformation of movement, emotion and thoughts into language, was created during “STILL MOVING”, a project curated by Philipp Gehmacher at Tanzquartier Wien.

Milli Bitterli founded the „artificial horizon” company in 2000. Since then she has created and participated in a variety of projects with Christine de Smedt, Wendy Houston, Superamas, Robert Steijn, and Jennifer Lacey a.o. From 2001 till 2003 Milli Bitterli was responsible for the Training and Workshop department of Tanzquartier Wien. As a dancer she has worked with Meg Stuart, Lloyd Newson, Nigel Charnock and many more. She studied classical dance at the Vienna State Opera and the Vienna Konservatorium. Afterwards she travelled in Europe and took further training in contemporary dance.
