In March, support from the TelepART Mobility Support Platform allocated by the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux goes to:

Death in Venice

Anne Pajunen – A Dance Artist and Movement Director based in Brussels and Helsinki

 

Death in Venice is a dance theatre performance based on Thomas Mann’s novella. Powerful visuality and poetic movement set the stage for the story of Gustav von Aschenbach, an elderly author. For one last ti­me, Aschenback attempts to find a new direction for both his life and his writings. Upon seeing a youth called Tadzio, his peaceful holiday in Venice becomes filled with emotional turmoil. The author’s fledgling love for Tadzio causes in him an avalanche of suppres­sed emotions and forbidden desires, thus driving the author towards his doom. The performance asks if it’s ever too late to change one’s life. Can an artist’s works be honest if their life is false?
