End of 2020, the trial of a matricide hit national sensation in China. The perpetrator is a student of an elite university. What propelled a promising member of the middle class to such atrocity? It perplexes and haunts many. A tragedy for the family, a trauma for the society.

This project departs from the aftershock of such ethical-emotional blast and dives into the social fabrics of everyday life, an immediacy that is shared by the protagonists of the criminal case as well as everyone else in the society.

Why dance? How can one dance the turmoil in the collective subconscious of a hyper fast transforming society? The dancing ones pull the fibre of tragedy in zeitgeist, stored in their ghosts, on the site of everyday experience where the speed of hope and desire tears apart the flesh of symbiotic relationship. The artistically formed bodies return to where its functionality is not ascribed, and under the gaze of camera, invite to reverse the game of artistic spectacle production and rehearse a forensic mourning, where silence resonates and violence normalises to invisibility. Do we need to mourn? Do we need to consume? Where consumption has replaced repentance and confession, we dance, dance and dance.

In the frame of a “digital bridge” Kammerspiele is hosting and featuring “Pyroclastic” a dance film created by GONG Zhonghui and HE Huan.

 

2020年底,一桩弑母案进入庭审,轰动全国。罪犯是一个精英大学的学生,一名未来中产,前途光明,何以致此?其中乖戾让很多人不能释怀。

这是一个家庭的悲剧,也是一个社会的创伤。这个项目从这样一个伦理和情感的爆炸余波里出发,潜回日常生活的社会肌理,这些日常是所有人共同的直接生活环境。在此为什么跳舞?怎么能在一个高速变化的社会把集体情绪的躁动舞蹈出来?跳舞的人在日常经验的现场将储存在他们个体精神里的时代悲剧丝丝扯出,共生的肉体被希望和欲望的速度撕开。艺术塑造的身体嵌回其功能未被赋予的地方,带着镜头的凝视,邀请观看者把艺术奇观生产的游戏调转,排演一场法医解剖式的哀悼,在哀悼之处,沉默共鸣沉默,暴力隐身成为正常。我们需要哀悼吗?我们需要消费吗?在消费取代忏悔的地方,我们跳舞,我们跳舞,我们继续跳舞。
