I’m from Austria, like Wolfi ! | 2010

This solo reflects personally and playfully on Christian Ubl’s life. As an expatriate and contemporary dancer, he brings his country – Austria – his birth-town – Vienna – his culture and his heritage – into parallel and conflict.

In his performance, Christian Ubl exploits the idea of protean choreography: a melting pot of styles. He also revisits certain Austrian traditions and dances that remain anchored in cultural life today. Through playful staging centred on a radio interview, the choreographer infiltrates and reveals snatches of key events from his life, to create a three-part dance, imbued with light-heartedness, irony, sincerity and nostalgia.
