Envy, greed, gluttony, anger, lust, sloth, pride.... In the Catechism, seven offences are considered sins so extreme, that they cannot be forgiven. In art, they have inspired all genres: from Renaissance painters to Hollywood films. Eric Gauthier offers them danced – in seven different ways. He follows the Cadavre Exquis model, a game of the Surrealists in which several artists put together a drawing or sentence on a folded sheet without knowing about the contents of the others. Gauthier brings together the crème de la crème of international choreographers for his collective collage: Aszure Barton, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Sharon Eyal, Marco Goecke, Marcos Morau, Hofesh Shechter and Sasha Waltz with each creating a dance piece without knowing about the work of the others. A mosaic of images is assembled into a large, metaphor rich tableau. Each of these seven artists will portray one of the deadly sins in movement at the Stuttgart Theaterhaus – dark, garish, minimalist or iconoclastic, from dance theatre to performance to modern ballet.
