Gisèle Vienne

What I saw last night. Gisèle Vienne at New York Live Arts. IMG_4806The piece opens on a dark snowy tableau with a coffin, mourners (some fake), and a band. A drunken hallucinatory memorial take places with droning speed guitar, a couple of yeti like creatures, beatings, an angsty glacially moving singer and grim commentary. Alternately haunting and hilarious.
Elements: live very loud music, realistic dolls, yetis, snow, singing, nudity, bottles, blood, voice-over, coffin etc.
Title:“Kindertotenlieder”
