The Modern Dreamer



The London-based performance artist and fashion designer, who delighted festival audiences last year with the dazzling choreography of her dance group Dollyolli, will create a performance with Mainz’s performers this year, especially for the festival:
In a combination of installation and performance, she wants to turn bodies into moving sculptures in a bizarre, surreal spatial situation.

With extravagant costumes, the proportions of the body are distorted and everyday gestures alienated to absurd choreographies. In Marie Brenneis’ dance performances, performers no longer look like humans, but beings from a fantastic counterworld.
