The Artaud Engine

The Artaud Engine is contemporary dance theatre work inspired by the life and work of the artist, Antonin Artaud (1896-1948). It is a work in two acts and takes place outside the Gates of Hell. Here the ghosts of both Artauds mother, his father, Anais Nin and the Danish film maker Carl Th. Dreyer wait to find out if the gates will open for them. Artaud alone has the power to prevent this as the only spirit ever to be rejected by both Heaven and Hell. Will he forgive or condemn them? Fight or love them? They all have different thoughts, hopes and fears but share only one fate.

Created with an ensemble of the four of the best actors and dancers in Denmark the work examines and explores the fine line between madness and genius and how this might create or destroy not only ones art but oneself.

  vampyr  

Vampyr

VAMPYR is about the vampires within our midst. Not the mythical bloodsucking movie cliché but the friend that manipulates, the ex-wife that lies and the husband that cheats. A woman speaks words that burn, seduce and contrive to control and manipute. Three dancers are caught in and by these words. With no will of their own they wait until fate or luck delivers a change; that the hunter will become the hunted.

At 20 minutes long VAMPYR is part one of a two part work investigating the relationship of movement to the spoken word. Part two, titled ZOMBIE, will premiere in the Copenhagen Fashion Festival of 2013.

The work premiered at Dansescenen Theatre, Copenhagen, in 2010. It was originally performed by the actress Charlotte Munck and the dancers Tiziana Fracchiolla, Heloise Vellard and Wubkje Kuindersma.
