We guide you through the programme of steirischer herbst which is taking place for the fiftieth time in Graz from September 22 until October 15, 2017.
Where exactly do we stand? What led to this present? And what instruments will we use to define our place in the world and the roads we follow in future? Or: “Where Are We Now?” – These are the major questions asked by this year’s festival about the way art and society see their position. At first glance, the festival booklet seems irrepressible. To provide you with a better overview, we selected 6 must-go events:
“Opening steirischer herbst, the acclaimed choreographer Mette Ingvartsen experiments with sensual, erotic and social body languages. She extends pleasurable and joyful situations until they culminate in a celebration with all participants. A choreography that both captivates and stimulates.”
Dope Saint Jude / Mobilegirl
“Who was Prometheus and what does his liberation have to do with reorientation in the modern-day chaos of world views? In their works for this year’s herbst exhibition, artists explore Eurocentric thinking and invite the audience to open their eyes to new parameters of thought when they look at the world.”
Karma She / Mechatok
“Orient and Occident, transcendence and trance are the perfect ingredients for a flamboyant finale of steirischer herbst 2017, when the energy level once again spirals to undreamed-of heights thanks to the bewitching Karma She from Israel and Munich-based DJ Mechatok.”
