Jailbreak Mind - Fabien Prioville

Jailbreak Mind

Fabien Prioville


What kind of process is a person running amok going through just before he is going to kill people? What kind of effects has a computer game like “Grand Theft Auto” on these people and the way they are observing reality? For his solo Fabien Prioville, former dancer of Tanztheater Wuppertal and the company La La La Human Steps, was inspired by an article widely publicized in the press concerning a man suddenly has randomly stabbed dozens of people in Tokyo. In his choreography Fabien Prioville is searching for an abstract perspective without disregarding the emotional aspects.

Which consequences do images with such a suggestive power have on a person’s mind? Jailbreak Mind is the first solo project that Fabien Prioville realises in co-production with the tanzhaus nrw and Trafó Budapest. It was invited to the German Dance platform Nürnberg in 2010.
