Video: Beauties of the Night

by Beauties of the Night on 19 May 2005

For the final exhibition at artist run space Flaca, which included work by Nora Schultz, Alex Heim, Sophie von Hellerman, Kalin Linden, Michael Hakimi and Rochelle Fry, Austrian band Beauties of the Night played an energetic set from the cramped space of the archway under the pavement. Their name is taken from the French 1952 film Les Belle de Nuit, about a young music teachers' thrwarted attempts to compose a masterpiece as he is constantly irritated by the noise his neighbours make, but who ultimately seeks happy refuge in his elaborate dreamic fantasies. Beauties of the Night aim create an intense and noisy embracing of the audience, more and less visible at turns through the illuminating slides that light them sporadically during their performance, they are definitely heard by their neighbours.
