EXTRA LIFE

Gisèle Vienne
March 16 – 17, 2024
ITALIAN PREMIERE
Running time 120’
A brother and a sister find each other at a party after twenty years of separation. United by a strong bond since their childhood, they were then separated by an unresolved family tragedy. Now, as adults, they are able to fully understand their experience of trauma, as they discover what really happened and rethink their future together. Through a dramatic approach and subversive humor, Gisèle Vienne, one of the most influential European artists, choreographers and directors, returns to Triennale with a piece that engages with the suppression of traumatic experience and its subsequent resurfacing. This is a strongly emotional production which combines theatre, dance and music, exquisitely composed by Caterina Barbieri.
Gisèle Vienne is a franco-austrian artist, choreographer and director. After graduating in Philosophy, she studied at the puppeteering school Ecole Supérieure Nationale des Arts de la Marionnette. Over the past 20 years, her work has been touring in Europe and regularly performed in Asia and in America among which, I Apologize (2004), Kindertotenlieder (2007), Jerk (2008), This is how you will disappear (2010), LAST SPRING: A Prequel (2011), The Ventriloquists Convention (2015) in collaboration with Puppentheater Halle and Crowd (2017). In 2020, she created with Etienne Bideau-Rey a fourth version of Showroomdummies at the Rohm Theater Kyoto, originally created in 2001. In 2021, she made the film Jerk and created L’Etang, a show based Robert Walser’s short story Der Teich. Gisèle Vienne has frequently been exhibiting her photographs and installations in museums among which the New York Whitney Museum, the Centre Pompidou Paris. Her work has led to various publications and the original music of her shows to several albums.
