Tanzschrift Review 

“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.

Senses is the new interdisciplinary work of PUC created in collaboration with the Brainchild Collective. The project focuses on the human senses as faculties of perceiving art. Senses evening aims to create a unique experience for the audience that speaks to the young and old, to the experienced and newcomers, to the reason and to the heart.

More about the project 

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.

COMMUNITY PROJECTS

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. In such a frame, the initial (post) educational role of the project enhances itself by an intercultural format that invites exchange, collaboration and integration. 

PUCZINE is the very first edition of PUC's digital zine. The publication features works of different disciplines, interviews with artists, and interactive experiences for the audience. Separee is an underlining topic of the edition, representing both, private and public spaces.

Puc and Friends event celebrated 2 years anniversary of our collective! We are eternally grateful to all the artists who took part in this beautiful evening and created magic on and off stage. PUC and Friends have already become a blissful sweet memory of our hearts.
