Cactus Bar - 2007
Compañia Mouvoir - Dir. Stephanie Thiersch

Dance performance (length ca. 85min), 4 dancers, 1 actor, 1 dj, 1 musician
What characterises the sensuous human after loosing all sexual taboos?
What remains of desire if the secret vanished and boredom took over?
In collaboration with four dancers, an actor, a DJane, and a musician the Cologne based artist Stephanie Thiersch explores the dark sides of eroticised bodies, the need for love in-between the extremes.
Stephanie Thiersch is a contemporary surrealist. She is one the most risk taking and experimental body artists of the present“ (3Sat, Birgit Adler- Conrad)
