Jonathan Burrows & Matteo Fargion
Both Sitting Duet & Body Not Fit For Purpose
> schwere reiter
Situated somewhere between dance, music, live art and comedy, the work of choreographer Jonathan Burrows and composer Matteo Fargion radiates delight even as it makes the audience think. Over the past twelve years the two artists have built a body of duets which mix the formality of classical music composition with an open and often anarchic approach to performance and audiences, bringing them a worldwide following. "Both Sitting Duet" was the piece that made their reputation back in 2002, setting the tone for an original mix of humour and fierce intelligence that marks out what they do. In Munich they'll follow it with their newest performance "Body Not Fit For Purpose", a commission from the 2014 Venice Biennale which clashes politics against the empty joy of dancing, unravelling the link between meaning and action and raising questions in the midst of our laughter. Both will be teaching the choreographic laboratory "Writing Performance" during the TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA.
"Body Not Fit For Purpose" is commissioned by the Venice Biennale and supported with public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
