Dans, for Satan

An explosive and humorous reflection on gender and sexuality and on being caught within your own identity.

Friday December 14th
22:00 – 22:17 (double bill with OVERSTATEMENT/OVERSTEINUNN starting at 21:00)
Tjarnarbíó, Tjarnargata 12

The piece aims to discuss issues in what one can call “the post equated society”, where many of us grow up being told that women and men can do the same thing: that is, exactly whatever we want. It is a question mark set as an exclamation mark. It is a mixture of the choreographers own words, and others thoughts. It is chaos and an attempt of control.

“Dressed in leopard print and a little golden crown, she announces movement phrases by clapping her hands above her head. Sexually loaded positions are invigorated with moaning and screaming. Electrical impulses shift inside her body: swaying, crushing, sighing, smiling, releasing. This defiant performer has the balls to slap, but without wiping the smile off our faces. Victim or powerhouse, she joyously jumbles up the two.”  – Lotte Wijers
