About The Event
An immersive experience that seeks to liquidate boundaries between body and environment, between social skin and what is underneath it.
We objectify our bodies against a certain image and embody our own unique fantasy.
Our fantasy is in constant dialogue with our age, gender, nationality, and social positioning.
BODYLAND is an intimate showing of choreographic works that explore commonality through given differences while raising questions in regards to the construction of our social identity and sense of belonging.
Inviting artists who have an urgency to share their stories while reflecting on:
Is there a place to be called BODYLAND?
If so how would you describe BODYLAND?
What will BODYLAND stand for?
Where will BODYLAND be placed?
