RADICAL  TOGETHERNESS

(2018-19)





Radical Togetherness/Constellations is a full-length dance performance, that takes place in theatre spaces and de-consecrated churches, is durational, and directly engages audiences in participation. The topic of focus is contemporary representations of male and female archetypes in family systems in Western society. It is a physical and theatrical work that challenges conventional dance-forms, such as duets and solos as well as their gendered stereotypes, through a colourful palette of rigorous movement investigation, song, drag, and symbolism. 

The dance research investigated thus far resulted in original movement and musical compositions, developed from found stories about European archetypes of Fools, Witches and hybrids such as the ancient Greek prophet Tiresias, along with their historical relationship to power and gender.
