Tabea Martin

Dressed in long white skirts, five proud characters stare at the audience. Are they beings of flesh and blood? Olympian gods? There forever, or mere mortals? Ethereal even when they fall, melodious even when they moan, harmonious even when they pretend to perish, they play and replay their own death all over again. The scenes of agony multiply, with a liberal amount of blood. Based on children’s outlook on death and the after, Swiss artist Tabea Martin invents a cathartic and a tad off-the-wall choreography that questions our representations on the subject, and makes us rather die of laughter than scared to death!
