guest performance

A cooperation by CocoonDance with the Zagreb Dance Center (ZPC) and the Staatstheater Darmstadt in the frame of Fonds Doppelpass by Kulturstiftung des Bundes.

They pull the rug from under our feet, cause discomfort, alienation, if not even disgust. Anthropomorphic beings, artifacts, hermaphroditic creatures of ensouled and unsouled, both human organism and machine – intimate and human and, at the same time, as a dead object that seems radically strange. Opposite to her, our own body suddenly appears to us just as alien and constructed

Body Shots investigates the narrow boundary of perception between these artificial beings and us and designs an almost human-like substitute bodie: anonymous, free of gender, ethnic and social norms and stereotypes which – at best – become an empathic body for the viewers inviting to project their fears, wishes and feelings onto them.

What remains is a vision of human existence and the question what our human beeing is all about.

With BODY SHOTS, CocoonDance continues its production series of deconstructing bodies such as VIS MOTRIX and the search for the still “unthought” and posthuman body.
