Apollon Musagète

Apollon Musagète

Florentina Holzinger / CAMPO in coproduction with Frascati Producties

language no problem


Six women tackle the neoliberalist cult of the body with all their performative brilliance and vicious physical virtuosity. Apollon Musagète limbos between the aesthetics of an occult fitness-studio, a cyborg-bullfight and neoclassical ballet.

Florentina Holzinger combines fin de siècle freakshow and 1960s live art, offering a new perspective on Balanchine’s choreography and the rupture between high art and entertainment culture. Through this humorous and furious destruction of a classical narrative Holzinger addresses the myth of this supposedly perfect woman, the artist herself. These perfect women – what do they even want?
