Showdown AV

Inspired by Monique Wittig's Le Corps Lesbien and Octavia Butler's novel Parable of the Sower, showdown AV imagines episodically the meeting and co-existence of two individuals. In a strange and at the same time provisional-hopeful environment. This audiovisual work expands the format of screen dance or documentary: Finding varied ways of relating dance, text and moving images, showdown AV offers non-didactic peeks into the narrative worlds and research that accompanied the process of making of the performance. With reference to the worlds of Neo-Western, Science Fiction and Survivalism.

Director Biography - Stella Horta, Judith Förster

STELLA HORTA is a filmmaker interested in more-than-human perspectives, somatic cinema, and video performance. She develops projects in the fields of experimental film, narrative film, and new media. She studied Visual Communication at the University of the Arts Berlin and sound, light, representation at the European Film College in Denmark and previously graduated from the Lisbon-based Art School António Arroio.

JUDITH FÖRSTER is a choreographer, dancer and set/costume designer living in Berlin. Her work is situated between visual arts and dance. Combining the performative and the somatic, she works very experience-oriented, starting from the body in its political, sensory and image-producing dimensions. The interaction of body and material is at the centre of her research and is constantly finding new forms in collaborations with choreographers, visual artists and dancers.
