An “ideological critique set to dance” – that is how the newspaper Westfälische Nachrichten describes bodytalk’s latest production. In “Bilderzerstörer” (“Picture Destroyers”), performers from the ensembles of bodytalk and the Polish Teatr Rozbark team up to probe the questions: what’s behind an image? Why do some images trigger such an aggressive response? This work attempts to fathom the motives which could have led to the violent, real-life attacks on paintings that have been recorded in museums. Who’s afraid of red, yellow & blue? And: who’s to say that the destruction of a picture can’t prevent a war?
