In her vocal dance performance Störlaut, Jule Flierl embarks on a futuristic-speculative reinterpretation of the sound dances created by the 1920s grotesque burlesque dancer Valeska Gert. The concept of sound dance was developed by Gert to illustrate the change from silent dance to vocal dance in ‘Western’ dance history. In her solo performance Jule Flierl shares the available floor space with the audience, who become part of a landscape of dissonances. Squealing, bellowing, rattling, stammering, cackling, panting, retching, whimpering, shrieking: this is the material that gives voice to a discourse outside of language, speaking with emotional directness.
In German and English.
is an artist from Berlin who works with choreography and voice. Using choreography and somatic singing methods, her scores unsettle the relationship between seeing and hearing: what you see is not always what you hear, and what you hear is not always what you see. Jule graduated from SEAD Salzburg, holds an MA in choreography at EXERCE Montpellier and continually studies the somatic voice method Lichtenberger Methode. She co-hosts the series FROM BREATH TO MATTER in Berlin.
