Teresa Vittucci


Queer Darlings | Sophiensæle

Production Details / Press Releases

In DOOM, the second part in the trilogy in praise of vulnerability, Teresa Vittucci invites the Composer and Performer Colin Self to explore the origins of The Female as described and created in Greek Mythology and the book of Genesis of the bible: EVE and PANDORA.

The roles of Eve and Pandora, whose stories serve as cautionary tales about the threat of female knowledge to this day, have been paramount for the position of people assigned to the gender “woman” in all Christian Judaic and Abrahamic societies. The piece examines the two female figures, their paralleled fate, reception, narrative and impact from a critical and queer-feminist perspective. In a poetic exploration Vittucci and Self submerge themselves into the field of unknowing knowledge. Who is hurt when female curiosity meets the patriarchal structure? And what risk lies at the core of the decision to open one’s eyes nonetheless?

Teresa Vittucci (*Vienna) graduated from Vienna Conservatory, The Ailey School, Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD) and the University of Arts Berne where she received her Masters in Expanded Theater. Since 2013 she has been developing a solo performance practice through her works UNLEASH (2012), LUNCHTIME (2015), ALL EYES ON (2017) and HATE ME, TENDER (2019). She has collaborated with several artists and institutions including Staatstheater Mainz, Tanzhaus Zürich, Simone Aughterlony, Marie Caroline Hominal, Trajal Harrell, Gil and Nils Amadeus Lange, whith whom she made the duo U BETTA CRY (2013).

Colin Self (geboren in Oregon, USA) komponiert Musik, Performances und Räume, die das Bewusstsein erweitern und Binaritäten sowie die Grenzen von Wahrnehmung und Kommunikation aufbrechen. Self arbeitet mit Communities aus verschiedenen Disziplinen zusammen und nutzt immaterielle und materielle Mittel – darunter Stimmen, Körper und Computer –, um verschiedene Welten miteinander zu verbinden und neu zu erfinden. Self arbeitet häufig mit Künstler*innen wie Holly Herndon, Martine Syms, Planningtorock und Geo Wyeth zusammen. Zu Selfs jüngsten Auftragswerken gehören THE WORLD TO COME, das 2020 für das Staatsorchester Berlin komponiert wurde, und TIP THE IVY, eine halbszenische Oper, die im Februar 2022 in Graz uraufgeführt wurde. Self lebt derzeit in Berlin.
