Part operetta, part techno club, and part esoteric ritual – the trailer of Tyler Matthew Oyer’s new performance »VENUS«.
Entitled »VENUS«, this music-driven stage show revolves around meditations on Venus as a femme, anti-patriarchal, non-dominant icon. The orbits of Venus and Earth dance in the pattern of a 5-pointed star or 5-petaled flower, a rhythmic traversing ebb and flow that reminds us our identities are not fixed, but constantly in flux; a relational orbit with our icons, past selves, and constellations of people, stories, dreams and inspirations. It features music from Tyler’s records »RELEASE DELUXE, NO TEMPLE«, and »RETEMPLE«, in addition to brand new unreleased songs produced while in residence at Rupert Residency, Vilnius. The show has premiered within the decommissioned St. Nicholas’ chapel of the decommissioned prison Lukiškės, in the center of Vilnius, Lithuania and subsequently toured to Yaga Gathering (Lithuania), and Shedhalle Zürich.
