Jailbreak Mind

What kind of process is a person running amok going through right before s/he is going to kill someone?

What kind of effects does a computer game like “Grand Theft Auto” have on its viewers and the way they observe reality? For this solo, Fabien Prioville, former dancer of Tanztheater Wuppertal and the company La La La Human Steps, was inspired by a press article describing a man who suddenly stabbed dozens of random people in Tokyo. In his choreography Fabien Prioville is searching for an abstract perspective without disregarding emotional aspects. Which consequences do images with such suggestive power have on a person’s mind?

Jailbreak Mind is the first solo project Fabien Prioville realised in co-production with the tanzhaus NRW and Trafó Budapest. It was invited to the German Dance Platform Nuremberg in 2010.
