Expressive, daring in representation, guided by values and goals rooted in the experience of ‘deep intuition’.
Five women represent a perfect image of different characters and recognizable situations. You think you recognize these women, but in their pursuit for absolute perfection of their own ideals, they get entangled in a distorted reality. These individual, powerful dancers are challenged to explore the boundaries of their own physicality of the formal ideal of visual feasibility in different scenes. An aesthetic world soon makes way for an absurd and disillusioned tableau of battle, pain and conflict.
[N] EMO BODY invites us to reconsider our everyday perception and unravel the truth within.
