fame
when I still  thought
I would  become famous

Choreography Preformance

multimedia performance, solo, 40 min

"I want to become famous, because it is very important to be famous." Walkways, casting shows, YouTube - celebrity seems to be a modern plague. For  many people, the public and media recognition is life’s single goal. In this tragicomic  dance solo, "fame", I go on the hunt for clicks and likes, panting between moves and  looks, - always having only one goal in mind -, to be recognised, loved and admired.  I turn, without fear of embarrassment, my Youtube channel into my stage and desire  just one thing from the spectator: to be idolised.  

"Fame" is a dance-theatre solo about the young generation’s desire to become  famous, to gain recognition, to become “someone”. The work is built like a Youtube channel using the techniques of pop art: borrowing existing elements, taking them  out of their context, and re-producing them. I was inspired by real-life idols, such as  Andy Warhol, David Bowie and Marilyn Monroe, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. This  work plays with distance and closeness, creating an illusion of being close to  someone while they remain still unreachable. Constantly creating and re-creating  myself, employing the clichés and stereotypes offered by pop culture, and trying to gain  the audience’s acceptance and admiration. 

“Auf jeden Fall präsentierte die junge Tänzerin und Choreographin mit viel Witz, starken Bewegungen und sogar exzellentem Gesang ein bemerkenswertes Solo. (kultur-kritik.net)”
