Peter Stamer & Frank Willens: In the Penal Colony
Peter Stamer & Frank Willens: In the Penal Colony © Peter Stamer
The Officer says to the Traveller: “They all knew: now justice was being carried out.” The execution device is outdated. But in earlier times, when it was still running smoothly, the executions were big events that took place in front of many spectators. A monstrous quality runs through Franz Kafka’s story "In the Penal Colony", which is produced in the course of the festival under the direction of Peter Stamer as a solo performance for dancer Frank Willens. The architectural machinery of mumok serves the artists as the “island” setting during their two-week residency. Stamer and Willens will let the ImPulsTanz audience experience their fascinating work process on two occasions.
