Alles Uhlich!

Doris Uhlich, who within the shortest time has advanced to become one of Austria’s most popular choreographers, is connected with brut more than any other artist. Her first solo projects celebrated major successes during the imagetanz festivals in 2006 and 2007. Even then it was without question that Uhlich is a very extraordinary choreographer who addresses political topics in her works in a highly personal manner. Since then, she has developed a great number of her works with brut and toured worldwide. After five years of co-operation, it is time to look back and focus on her key works in a special show of her works. The cheerful Ulrich series opens with SPITZE (2008) [POINTE]. In this examination of classical ballet, Uhlich meets with Harald Baluch and Susanne Kirnbauer, former first soloist with Vienna’s State Opera. While SPITZE addresses the standardising restrictions in classical ballet, in her piece mehr als genug [more than enough] (2009), possibly her most personal work, Uhlich examines how a body can become a trademark. Uhlich’s productions often deal with the special gestures of everyday life, with the very individual dance language of her guests. With her unique research piece und (2007) [and], she embarked on the search for the traces and patterns that a life leaves on the body. For the revival of the piece under the extended title und jetzt [and now], the former performers come together again and test what is still possible and where it all has led. Within the process of life inscribing itself onto the ageing body, the performance Uhlich (2011), being shown at brut for the first time, takes a look into one’s own future: Gertraud Uhlich, the artist’s mother, represents the artist on stage in the production – as a prediction of what her own body language and gestures will look like in thirty years. The piece premiered at the 2011 Wiener Festwochen. And, finally in this series, the successful production Rising Swan (2010) should not be missed.
The shows are complemented by an analysing roundtable talk with Milli Bitterli, Susanne Kirnbauer and Doris Uhlich, a lecture by the theatre scholar, author, and Uhlich collaborator Judith Staudinger, and the video documentation Johannen (2009) [Johannas]. To complete the programme, brut will additionally be showing one of Uhlich’s very first works: Impatiens walleriana (2007), dealing with the younger generation in botany, but also in the theatre business. It thus also traces the path that Uhlich herself has taken. Aside from looking at Uhlich’s works over the past five years, Alexander Schellow dares a first glimpse at the presently developing production Come Back with his installation Back Ground 01. And, for everybody who finally want to take part themselves, Doris Uhlich is offering an open workshop at the end of this retrospective where everybody can become a Pop Swan. Everything dances? Everything Uhlich!
