A cool night, the smell of damp earth, 15 young dancers. Joy and anticipation are palpable. When the techno beat begins, a complex web of emotions, longings and tensions develops in the microcosm of a dance-loving community. Intoxicating, threatening and liberating forces unite in the collective ritual of movement.
Gisèle Vienne, a Franco-Austrian director, choreographer and visual artist, meticulously explores the conflicts that flare up within a group of young people. Does violence also have positive potential? Can it be regarded as a constructive part of a society? 1990s Berlin – techno, punk and Love Parade – is as much an inspiration for Gisèle Vienne as contemporary club culture and archaic rituals. Carried by Peter Rehberg’s tracks selection , and in an electrifying synergy with light and movement, the magic of a rave unfolds. Oscillating between a daydream and a trance, Crowd makes our linear perception of time stand still.
