Culture: Gisèle Vienne

Nice piece on the work of the incomparable Gisèle Vienne over on Dennis Cooper’s blog, giving an update on her activities and upcoming performances. We first met Gisèle when AB released the vinyl version of the Kindertotenlieder ‘soundtrack’ by KTL. Her work is some of the most arresting and memorable we’ve ever witnessed, and her use of mediums such as dance, puppetry and ventriloquism in telling transgressive tales is genius.

On ventriloquism: Passionately eclectic, in search of all the blind spots that link the word to the body, Gisèle Vienne has seized in its own way this technique decommissioned and relegated to pure and hard entertainment: “It is a kind of acoustic magic trick. ”

Read the full piece here.  Visit Gisèle’s site here for more details.
