Gisèle Vienne - choreographer, artist, and puppeteer - has created a world marked by terror and trouble, the lively mixed with inertia, and perception trapped by hyperrealism. Her new creation, The Pyre condenses abstract, figurative, and narrative writing and pushes the intense relationship between Gisèle Vienne and the text by Dennis Cooper to its limits. Vienne and Cooper have worked together since 2004. A dancer and a boy, totally mute, evolve in a luminous installation reminiscent of contemporary urban lighting - the city, the club.
