‘In Touch’ is an experimental piece that reinterprets the materiality of physical contact using sound. Based on recognizable everyday noises of touch, the piece explores collective sensory experiences and plays with the audience's expectations. Using their skin as a means of communication, the performers from PUC explore alternative worlds of the senses that unfold with the music

“Oh the blackness is murderous
and the milk tip is brimming a
nd each machine is working
and I will kiss you
when I cut up one dozen new men
and you will die somewhat,
again and again.”

This work is an excerpt of PUC’s year-long research project that circulates around the concept of subjectivity and the autonomy/dependency/inter-dependency it stimulates when being expressed publicly. The piece unfolds around an utterance of the female gaze (voice), the pre and post-condition of such an act. Here PUC works with a text of the controversial Iranian female poet Forough Farrokhzad and the potentiality of a non-verbal, spatial assertion of the body as an equal non-representative partner of the linguistic expression.

Bauhaus tanzt II is an independent creation as well as the continuation of Bauhaus tanzt. Woking on a same topic, we deepened our research and explored the limits of Oscar Sclemmer’s concept as well as its correlation with John Cage music.
More about the project.
Bauhaus Tanzt is an experimental reflection on the Triadic ballet created in 1922 .In our approach we relate to the method that Oscar Schlemmer suggested himself: a practical study of artist’s theory towards the historical context on stage.

Artil is a project that builds a bridge into the professional world for young artists through a residency program including mentorship, production support, and interdisciplinary workshops. This year, for the first time, the project takes place across Austria, Poland, and Ukraine.
