Performance by Jule Flierl

Faux-Pas is a solo Dance intervention embedded in public pace. It consists of dance and vocal material. There is a Unicorn that deals with the uncertainty of how to continue this dance. The Unicorn wears tap shoes, which it uses just like a Unicorn would.
Jule Flierl is a dance and voice artist from Berlin. She develops practices that conceive of the voice as a dancer, translating dance into the auditory realm. Her practice lives between experimental choreography and somatic singing methods where she develops scores to unsettle the relationship between seeing and hearing. She revives and continues the legacy of Valeska Gert, avant-garde dancer from 1920's Berlin who first conceptualised the term ToneDance: to dance with one's voice. Flierl collaborates with choreographer Antonia Baehr “Die Hörposaune” live / film (2022) and ToneDance artist Irena Z. Tomažin “U.F.O. - Hommage to Katalin Ladik” (2021). Her works “School of Attunement and Tactlessness” (2022) and “Time out of Joint” (2023) develop grotesque bodies and dissonant collectives. Jule graduated from SEAD Salzburg, holds an MA in choreography from EXERCE Montpellier and continually studies the somatic voice method “Lichtenberger Methode”. [Artist website]
