Austria’s best-known contemporary choreographer has become a “Test Tube Girl”! More specifically, one who says: “I want to stink again”. With this in mind, Doris Uhlich immerses her body in a glass tank in reaction to the current hype of biotechnological and robotic body improvements. To all the promises of happiness associated with handing the flesh over to the big-industry field of experimentation. What does this body, banished to a tube, do? It twitches along with the drive of the music, it wakes up and speaks. Does it resist or does it try to draw pleasant feelings from its surroundings? Hair slaps against glass. Is this being dangerous?
