Description

NORMCORE
A performance by Dinis Machado (SE/PT)
Danced by Lo River Löof (SE), Mandi Tiukkanen (FI/SE), Gareth Cutter (UK), Kathleen Hawkins (UK), André Cabral (PT)
-------

NORMCORE is a playground dance for five performers. Departing from their bodies in what they have of specific materialities, architectures, histories, dance training, background amongst others.

Questioning the exhausted idea of undressing as a metaphor for revealing one’s natural essence, we invest instead in constructed nakednesses paying attention to bodies that do not imagine themselves as they are medically described or seen by society.

We investigate and build bodies with assemblages that transform our bodies into what we need, what we wish, or how we feel them, and we dance the dances they dance. Communal dances of a crooked togetherness where the politics of doing are more relevant than their formal equivalence. Dances of self custom made virtuosities where our bodies discover themselves in a collective process. A multiple togetherness where we build our identities and their very materialities. A dance together where the trust in each other allows us to discover our bodies further into places we dream of.
