On November 5th, 1768, a meteorite falls with a roar from the darkened sky above Mauerkirchen. The farmer's wife Apollonia Bart finds it the next day. DOWNFALL first invites guests to the experimental site of Lawine Torrèn in Moosdorf to observe a stone weighing tons in its fall. The seismic shaking will be joined as a floor choreography to a film. The performative presentation including the rock takes place at SZENE Salzburg.

• Lawine Torrèn is a network of artists directed by Hubert Lepka. Together, the dancers, actors, technicians, authors, media-artists, photographers, and musicians turn lanscapes into stages for unprecedented performances. Like in film they handcraft significance by choreographic rearrangements of reality. A farm in Moosdorf close to Salzburg is their headquarter.

Through recurring patterns, CieLAROQUE attempts to find a form of dance capable of adaptation and flexibility, focusing not only on the body but also on the relationship to time and space. The movement vocabulary does not seek perfection, but is oriented towards the rough edges, the imperfect is wanted.

• Helene Weinzierl founded in 1995 CieLAROQUE, one of the most touring ensembles of the Austrian dance scene. In her choreographic, interdisciplinary works she often deals with socio-politically relevant themes. She has received numerous international prizes for her pieces, which are characterized by a clear, intense language of movement.
She explores her primal female power - courage, strength, sensuality awaken in joy, in love. The mysticism of this choreography is supported by live music and video projections and helps to unleash the individual elemental forces towards wholeness: ELYSIUM.
