KiosK 59 opens from April 8th to 10th on the Währinger Straße. The action takes place in 15 spaces of WUK, on the open street and in the immediate vicinity of the Volksoper. A temporary camp serves as agora. 26 dance performances, installations, workshops and panel discussions are on the programme. Diversity is the order of the day.
To talk about sustainable strategies, theatre, dance and art while being conscious of the army of gaping scissors of wealth, religions, genders, generations, east and west, north and south. To take the floor, define viewpoints, develop convictions, start the speech, represent opinions. Dancing as long as you can and then throwing yourself in the corner completely exhausted. Breaking down borders. Get to it, get through it, be part of it!
The chance lies in diversity, the principle in disorder. Show me your ass.
The uncomfortable, the ugly, the surprising, the ambivalent, the insolent are needed to bring forth the beautiful. It needs the explosive that ignites opinions, triggers controversies, flares tempers.
KiosK 59 is open space and show of ttp’s work. Borne from maximum independence, artistic freedom and self-determination, works will be presented which contradict the familiar forms of categorisation and refuse the “one concept” in their versatility and diversity. Unusual aesthetics, bizarre practices of movement and uncomfortable questions are the objectives.
In a world ruled by the money market, a world under the regime of irresponsible risk-taking in the application of and the dealing with debt capital, rising unemployment and increasing dependency of the political on economic powers, the employees of faceless stockholders, the need is growing for free-thinking and self-determination.
KiosK 59 is presentation, intervention, laboratory, a hub of networks and a platform of reflection, discussion, and it is the starting point with an intention to rule the roost, to be in charge, to bear the blame.
