Gisèle Vienne, stage artist for emotional abysses and ecstatic states, shows in her biggest scenic overpowering to date an emotional tramping party crowd.

The music to which 15 young-looking night performers appear in slow motion, has what it takes: A playlist of Peter Rehberg with classics of Detroit Techno and its electronic predecessors like Manuel Göttsching prepare the ground for an emotional state of emergency. As the movements of the party guests are virtuously slowed down and stylized, the nocturnal, quasi-religious ecstasy of the dancers is dissected. A palette of complex emotional worlds unfolds before the eyes and ears of the spectators. In the collective intoxication, moments of love and violence or intimacy and aversion emerge; and with the rhythm of the music and the body, the perception shifts as well. In CROWD the emotions are literally blank and tell stories that the author Dennis Cooper wrote as a subtext behind the images. In this way, the French choreographer Gisèle Vienne takes up her theatrical trips, with which she already provided disturbing and happy moments at the summer festival in 2013 and 2015.
