“24 frames per second” is a collaboration with the piano quartet Kukuruz, the choreographer Lee Méir and the video artist Georg Lendorff.
A co-production with the Wiener Festwochen.
Vienna – Austria
A space between no man’s land, film set and white cube. In it six dancers, a piano quartet and a billboard. They warm up their instruments, stretch their bodies, meet, lose themselves, disappear. While the flickering light of a video projection pervades the room, a beat slowly develops, a pulse. Making films means watching people die in 24 frames per second, according to the famous observation of French director Jean Cocteau. The new evening by Boris Nikitin, in a crossfading of music theatre, dance and video art, appropriates this sentence and directs the gaze to the integration of our bodies into time. https://www.borisnikitin.ch/en/projekte/24_Bilder_pro_Sekund
