Posing Project C

The Art of Garfunkel

The premiere of its third part concludes the Posing Project, and the staging of the whole trilogy at the same time also formed the finale of the Impulstanz Festival 2008.

In The Art of Garfunkel the spectator ultimately becomes a performer, and finds himself opposite his wondering, artificial observers. Between short-lived strategies of superiority, aiming at five minutes of fame and the repeated fulfillment of anonymous expectations, the poser returns to the pure, timeless conflicts within himself. How many bodies does it take to slip into all these roles? At the end, the silent posers are the only spectators left.
