| Friday 1 July
At 16:30 – 17:30
MUU Helsinki Contemporary Art Centre

A performance that brings fluids to the outside of our body. One part strange spectacle on ice, one part slimy orgy. In Fluids, bodies are vulnerable, limited, and dissolve into each other.

In Fluids, W A U H A U S creates an impossibly slippery stage for the bodies of the performers. The performance is enabled by J-Lube, a lubricant that creates a movement language continuously fluctuating between clumsiness and gracefulness. Fluids invites the audience to encounter empathy, intimacy, and failure.

There are two performances of Fluids, on July 1st at 16:30, and July 2nd at 13:30.
