Fleshdance

documentary performance



ย 
We have this fabulous intelligence, but, we also in some ways, we are the most fragile living beings on this planet. So fragile that we โ€“ because of the capacities โ€“ we risk failing in ways
that will destroy every possibilities of any human future.
โ€“ Jan
Helge Solbakk, Bioethicists from Oslo

The documentary performance deals with the meaning of theย body โ€“ the flesh โ€“ in todayโ€™s society. Three performers navigateย through live music, live video and pan-European interviewsย with protagonists from the porn industry, the church, the foodย industry, and many more.ย Fascination meets disgust, theory meets practice, bodyย meets consciousness: Individuals on data carriers, conceptsย of the unthinkable, perception as the basis of the mind, theย vulnerability of the human body, the non-locatability of humanย thought in a binary logic, the question of the possibility of
disembodied existence, the will of the spirit and the desire of the flesh. With the co-presence of the materials, the live performance and the audience, a space is created which enables the simultaneity of the seemingly incommensurable, allowsย perspectives to collide and searches for ruptures as well as Interfaces between concepts.
