WING | Platform for Performance presents two performances by contemporary Swiss artists working in the exciting no-man's-land that is the crossover of performing and visual arts, with works oscillating between poetics and politics, between moving and standing still, exploring this often visited yet still vastly uncharted territory.

Alexandra Bachzetsis

In her aptly titled solo performance Gold, Alexandra Bachzetsis continues to explore the proverbial gold standard of the libidinal economy that buttresses contemporary visual culture - the eroticised, empowered female body. Propelled, among others, by a riveting dance track courtesy of Missy Elliott, Kelis and Khia—a potent symbol of sex-laden female power in her own right—Gold deftly plays around the ambiguous choreographic vernacular of hiphop and R&B: a black-and-tan tits-and-ass show complete with the obligatory sprinkling of gold dust, Bachzetsis’ solo piece offers a powerful and fully embodied reflection on dance culture, visual pleasure and the commodification of fantasy.




Alexandra Bachzetsis is a choreographer and visual artist, based in Basel and Zurich. Her practice unfolds at the intersection of dance, performance, the visual arts and theater, generating a conflation of the spaces in which the body, as an artistic and critical apparatus, can manifest. This fundamentally interdisciplinary approach is reflected in her educational background. She studied and graduated at the Zürcher Kunstgymnasium, the Dimitrischule in Verscio, the Performance Education Program at the STUK arts centre in Leuven, and then continued to post-graduate level at Das Arts, the Advanced Research in Theatre and Dance Studies centre in Amsterdam. During these years of training, Bachzetsis began to work as a dancer in the contemporary dance and performance context, collaborating with Sasha Waltz & Guests and Les Ballets C. de la B. – among others. Collaboration, transference and a plurality of voices and bodies have informed Bachzetsis’ work ever since and is often thematised as a method of developing new work in her practice.


Much of Bachzetsis’s work involves choreographies of the body and, in particular, the way that popular culture provides source material for gesture, expression, identification, and fantasy as we continually create and re-create our bodies and the way we identify. Within this, she scrutinises the mutual influence between the use of gesture and movement in the ‘popular’ or ‘commercial’ genres on the one hand (online media, video-clip and television as a resource) and in the ‘arts’ on the other hand (ballet, modern and contemporary dance and performance). For Bachzetsis, the artificial and often precarious relationship between such genres produce an inquiry into the human body and its potential for transformation, however conceptual or actual. Ultimately, the way we all perform and stage our bodies and ourselves – through stereotypes and archetypes, through choice and cliché, through labor and spectacle – is a question that continues to shape the work of Bachzetsis.


Since Bachzetsis started working independently in 2001, she has created over 23 pieces, often working collaboratively, which have been shown in theatres, festivals and public space venues worldwide. In addition to this, her work has been exhibited in a variety of contemporary art spaces and museums, including Kunsthalle Basel, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Tate Modern and the Jumex Museum in Mexico City, as well as a number of international biennials, such as the 5th Berlin Biennial, (d)OCUMENTA 13 in Kassel and the Biennial of Moving Images in Geneva. Bachzetsis is a laureate of the Migros Kulturprozent Jubilee Award (2007), the Swiss Art Award (2011) and Swiss Performance Prize (2012).





《黃金》探討慾望經濟作為當代視覺藝術的黃金標準如何慾化女體。透過女唱作音樂人Missy Elliot, Kelis, Khia等引人入「性」的跳舞音樂及性感形象所代表的另類女性力量,作品巧妙地玩弄流行舞蹈語言,强而有地揭示舞蹈文化、視覺快感與慾念幻想商品化之間的關係。




既是編舞,也是視覺藝術家,現居於巴塞爾及蘇黎世。她的跨介作品滙集舞蹈、表演、視覺藝術和戲劇,以身體展現。她的多元素表現方式乃受其教育背景啟發,畢業於蘇黎世藝術高中及瑞士韋爾斯喬的迪米特里戲劇學院,再在比利時魯汶的STUK藝術中心修讀演藝教育。後來,更於荷蘭阿姆斯特丹的Das Arts藝術學院戲劇及舞蹈中心當研究生。


在學期間,Bachzetsis以舞者及表演者身份活躍於當代舞及演藝舞台,曾合作過的藝團包括柏林舞團Sasha Waltz & Guests 及比利時當代舞團Les Ballets C. de la B。




Bachzetsis的大部份作品也喜以流行文化為題材,種種意識形態、幻想如何不斷地將我們的身體和身份創造、再創造。她以此審視流行商品文化中與藝術舞台上動作的相互關係,對人的身體和能夠改變的可能性提出疑問。我們的身體如何展現自己,是原型還是被定型,是個人選擇還是盲目跟風,是切實幹還是定定看 一 也為Bachzetsis的創作帶來靈感不斷。


從2001年起,Bachzetsis開始獨立創作,相繼有23個作品,她與不同藝術家合作,並於世界各地的劇場、藝術節及公共空間演出。她的作品更見於當代藝術空間及博物館,其中包括:瑞士巴塞爾 Kunsthalle Basel藝術博物館、荷蘭阿姆斯特丹市立美術館(Stedelijk Museum)、泰特現代美術館(Tate Modern)、墨西哥城 Jumex 博物館及多個國際藝術雙年展,包括:第五屆柏林雙年展、德國卡塞爾文獻展((d)OCUMENTA 13) 及瑞士日內瓦活動影像雙年展(Biennial of Moving Images)。


Bachzetsis 曾榮獲瑞士米格羅文化百分比基金會紀念獎2007 (Migros Kulturprozent  Jubilee Award)、瑞士藝術獎2011 (Swiss Art Award)及瑞士演藝大奬2012 (Swiss Performance Prize)。

Duchesses | 公爵夫人 (2009)

Marie-Caroline Hominal & François Chaignaud

2016年3月26日(星期六) 晚上8時



Between arid ecstasy, radiant meditation and cruel hypnosis, Duchesses explores an unlikely dance, sovereign and prisoner from the most ancient game of humanity. The hula-hoop, symbol of sexual liberation, becomes for the Duchess a choreographic device, instantaneous and incessant, without a past or future – a universal two-wheeled vehicle.


Please note that the program contains nudity and adult themes. Parental discretion is advised.





Marie-Caroline Hominal did her Dance education at Janet Held Studio in Montreux, the Schweizerische Balletberufschule in Zurich and at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance in London.

During this last period she was a member of the National Youth Dance Company. Her practice includes video, songwriting, music, choreography, and performance. She has collaborated with François Chaignaud, with whom she created Duchesses (2009), Clive Jenkins, Cristian Vogel, and visual artists Kim Boninsegni, David Hominal and Delphine Coindet. Recently, she has developed miniature one-to-one performances such as Hôtel Oloffson (2013) and Le Triomphe de la Renommée (2013), as well as full length performances such as Ballet (2014), Patricia Poses by the Pop Machine (2011) and the live concert performance Silver (2013). As a dancer she has worked with the Tanztheater Basel, Irène Tassembedo, Blanca Li, Gisèle Vienne, Gilles Jobin, La Ribot, and Marco Berrettini. She was a guest performer for Human Writes by William Forsythe and B.O.B. by Dick Wong. Since 2008, she has been showing her work, in both theaters and galleries, among other cities, Basel, Belgrade, Berlin, Beirut, Bilbao, Bogotá, Bruxelles, Chicago, Dresde, Genève, Los Angeles, New York City, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Santiago de Chile, Varsovie, Wroclaw, Zagreb, and Zurich.



François Chaignaud received both a classical and contemporary training at Conservatoire National de Région (Rennes) and graduated from Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse (Paris). After having taken part in Bocal project, lead by Boris Charmatz in association with other artists (Vera Mantero, Steve Paxton, Jean-Luc Moulène, etc.), he dances for Emmanuelle Huynh, Gilles Jobin, Aydin Teker, Mille Plateaux Associés, Tiago Guedes or Frédéric Gies.

He has been creating his own performances since 2004, alone (Dumy Moyi, 2013) or in collaboration with Cecilia Bengolea (Pâquerette, Dub Love, Twerk, to name a few) and has been extensively touring his work around the planet. ​
