Florentina Holzinger & Vincent Riebeek

Kein Applaus für Scheiße

Österreichische Erstaufführung

The audience is often merciless in the theatre. Young artists give everything for applause following a performance. Kein Applaus für Scheiße [No Applause for Shit] aims for an evening full of feelings, excitement, and surprises. The two performers – Florentina Holzinger and Vincent Riebeek – do not always take the title of their new work seriously. They are flirting with the limits of everything that is possible on stage and refer to the canon of 1970s body art and performance art in order to also parody it. They further take up elements from pop culture’s rich tapestry: one may see roller skating interludes, singing, and acrobatics in this piece that with each new performance includes new elements while leaving out others. Holzinger and Riebeek do not once lose sight of each other during this cheerful duet. True to their work’s title, the choreography for two always risks losing its balance when one of the two performers flagrantly try to hog the stage for the closing applause.,
