At the turn of the 19th century, in artists’ studios throughout Europe, young women were summoned by painters to pose for their greatest masterpieces. Some of these models’ names are preserved by history, but most remain unremembered, unspoken of, anonymous.
Using the history and works of landmark Expressionist painter Gustav Klimt as their inspiration, THEATRE ENCOUNTER imagines the experiences of these unknown women in this all-new performance creation.
An alluring blend of expressionist dance, music and light, this production explores the ways in which the artist’s model is a tool – a plaything – while also having her own motives, goals, and desires. KLIMT’S PLAYTHINGS is an unsettling and sensual experience for a limited number of audience, who sit in the midst of the action of the performance.
