    24 May, following the performance

Following a commission by the Wiener Festwochen, austrian-born and internationally acclaimed visual artist Markus Schinwald has produced a Danse Macabre. This visual scheme first adopted in the 14th century is an allegory symbolising Death’s equalising power over people and became a major iconographic theme of the Late Middle Ages. A personification of death invites protagonists from all walks of life to join in this final, inescapable dance. With his new work, Markus Schinwald, renowned for his visual manipulations of bodies and spaces, returns to the medium of performance. Here he elaborates a system of fragmented partition walls that wrap themselves around the audience like a membrane, permeable only to the physical bodies of the performers. A new composition for 23 live musicians by young American artist Matthew Chamberlain accompanies the macabre procession. There is no escape!
