Siemens Forum: Long Night of the Museums

The Long night of the museums has become a sensational success in Vienna. Close to a million people visit the extraordinary museum of one of the major European capitals. Eva Flatscher performed during that night at the Siemens Forum, the Event Center of the mulitnational company. Dany Scott took the stage to dance to the improvised music of David Boyd, Martin Moro and Wili Platzer.

The performance was so well received that it made it to the coverpage of the Kurier, a leading daily in Austria, becoming one of the seldom occasions where contemporary art is perceived as the news of the day.

LIGHTPAINTING performance „signal“ by Eva Flatscher in Vienna
LIGHTPAINTING is an interaction of all artistic forms
where art functions as a language bridge.
Each art form has a unique voice which stimulates and even serves the others,
so that together the voices communicate an even more powerful message.
Tradition combines with innovation.
A graphic tablet serves as the canvas, a graphic stylus the brush.
The medium is light.
Visual art reaches a new frontier

Van Gogh, enthusiastic

Stunning, surprising, cutting edge....the performance "NO LiGHT, NO LIFE" excited the audience at Speyer Hall, in New York City by presenting a unique combination of dance, music and painting. "Once you have seen a performance like this,  you realize how much more powerful artforms are when they join effort.", an overwhelmed spectator stated in the O&A that followed the performance.

Allison Jay.Baber gave an extraordinary performance, personifiying "CREATIVITY", that inspired Vincent Van Gogh - danced by Matthew Westerby. Late in his life Van Gogh became a painter, after having been a preacher  for some time. Van Gogh painted for no more than 10 years, and had an immense struggle accepting divinity in his art, he even denounced his belief in order to find the truth and purity in creation. In Marla Hirokawas interpretation Van Gogh lost his inner battle of selfdoubt and selfdestruction, but something eternal lived on for ever: Art and creativity, inspired by something much more important than Life, the divine light.

Light Artist Eva Flatscher received standing ovations for an immensly powerful, enlightened live painting performance.

Homunculus Theater

„Dance theater homunculus“ in Vienna...

The renowned Viennese Dance Company, under the guidance of Manfred Aichinger and Nikolaus Selimov produced the dance and lightpainting performance Wiener Küche, which took the audience in a labyrinth, on a mysterious trip through, simbolic for the overbureaucraticed European art scene, that installs boards and councils of experts, that do not know what and when.... . Like in Kafkas "The Castle" you always wonder, where the keys to those many doors are, until you find out: it will be an eternal riddle...

The disturbing piece earned smashing support from enthusiastic followers. 

Producer: Homunculus Theater

Graz, the capital of Styria, home of former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, was the Europen cultural capital of 2003. Eva Flatscher took part in the project, which gave a boost to the whole area, bringing the love for the arts to an unprecedented level.

She "lightpainted" the facade of the Museum "Joanneum", by using classical theater equipment, projecting her avantgarde art on the face of the historic builing. Tradition and cutting edge art made a unique and challenging encounter.
