MA CHOREOGRAPHY: Tamara Alegre

Fiebre

The work exercises ways of being, moving and relating in a specific viscous and fluid material. It is experienced and choreographed through, from and with slime. Slime, as a main element in the space, and the affection mechanism from and to it saturates the sensual experience towards sensations of alienation, pleasure and disgust. The slime on the floor stagnates the space, bodies work horizontally as they are pulled down to a ground that is no longer solid.

Fiebre is an attempt to create an intimate, inceptive space that moves through trajectories of physical states, erotic togetherness, heat and rawness. Is a dance piece that is part of an on-going research with slime, dance and bodies with a desire to develop workshops around this research to address primarily female and non-cis male teenagers in youth-clubs.

A proposal from Tamara Alegre created together with Lydia Östberg Diakité and Marie Ursin. Karina Sarkissova as advisor and Klara Utke Acs as external eye.

Costumes by Benedicte Eggesbø, Hedda Carlson and Freja Wesik.
