Raegan Truax and CounterPulse present Citation Exhausted by words, decorating skeletons, erasing everything to begin again.

wild child

October 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm
CounterPulse,

“wild child” is a thirty minutes solo by Valérie Reding, which is realized as a co-production with Tanzhaus Zürich. When pompous burlesque acts and personal confessions come together, the boundaries between naturalness and artificiality, authenticity and masquerade, reality and fantasy become blurred.

CounterPulse,

Clement Hil Goldberg and CounterPulse are proud to present Our Future Ends Our Future Ends is a sad yet hopeful satire that connects threats of extinction to wildlife and wild life through fabulously choreographed final numbers. The multidisciplinary piece unearths Lemuria in a visual arts installation that unfolds into parallel narratives.
