Description:_
Mermaid is an attempt at creating a monster. The two performers develop in a dancing symbiosis the movement potentials of unity and fusion of two bodies functioning as an entity. They investigate the figure of the mermaid considering its partly dark historic roots as well as its relevance in today’s pop culture. A dance piece emerges that connects a reflection of geopolitic questions of the limits of personal freedom with a humoristic movement research and an appeal to a lust for imagination.
美人鱼,本质即是奇异的魔兽。两个舞者以身体探索各种聚合与交融的可能性。美人鱼身上既烙印着历史的暗黑故事,也烙印着当代的性别刻板。探问地域政治对个人自由的限制,怀着颠沛的想象力来叩问,以舞创造光怪陆离的肢体探索
