Peter Pleyer

Ponderosa Trilogy


Production Details / Press Releases

The piece consists of combined solo-works that have been conceived and premiered at the performance marathon at ponderosa tanzland-festival during the past years. In this solo Peter Pleyer interweaves major strands of his performance interest, from crocheting, dance-improvisation, queer theory, a.i.d.s.-activism and writing into a tapestry of stories and situations. The piece is done in sections, in a collage the motives are getting puzzled together creating a whole that incorporates audience participation in direct speech and asking for help by performing certain actions. The focus is on the personal, there is a book here and there, a text, a dance, and costumes. Some of the music will reference to gay artists from the past. Techniques of new shamanic actions will link that past with the future.
