On the occasion of the Altstadtfest (Old Town Festival) in the new Old Town area in Frankfurt am Main, which will take place from the 28th to the 30th of September 2018, Frankfurter Kunstverein will present the dance performance „Framing Reality“ in cooperation with the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company.
On the evenings of both Friday, September 28, and Saturday, September 29, the performance ”Framing Reality“ will take place in the building of the Frankfurter Kunstverein, presented in collaboration with the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company, headed by choreographer Jacopo Godani. Shortly after sun set select window fronts of the building will serve as a scene for dance interventions and a dramatic light show. Like lit-up displays, the large windows of the Frankfurter Kunstverein will become unconventional stages which emanate into the new streets of the Dom-Römer neighborhood and will be visible for visitors from afar.
Dancers of the company will transform the illuminated windows into tableaux vivants – living images. The masterly bodies unfolding right behind the large window fronts and joined by a spectacular light concept will mark a highlight of the festivities. The mesmerizing performance interweaves human bodies, light, color, and movement into a trenchant expression of the precise language Godani has developed with the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company. The dance performance “Framing Reality“ takes place on both evenings of the Old Town Festival in the building of the Frankfurter Kunstverein.
