Gudrun von Laxenburg

General Information

Year of Foundation:  2009

 

A darkened room full of sweat dripping party people, on stage a LED-backlit trio in 90s space outfits, giving the dance crazy audience hell. The performances by Gudrun von Laxenburg not only demand an audience with a stable circulatory, but also a strong stamina when dancing to 170 bpm. Slower beats and less eccentricity are out of question.
