About the Event



At the end, it all comes down to the question of Power.

But, power might be different than what we think of it.

What about the power of the somatic and of the erotic? Oops! Of course, how can we forget the power of fascism?

U__________S is a dance performance performed by three dancers, which investigates not three bodies by themselves, but the affect, the between-ness amongst them. It offers a locus of geographies, encounters and landscapes within the relation and the entanglement of three bodies: the fascist, the erotic and the somatic body.

While in The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life (1956), the Canadian sociologist Erving Hoffman advocates that we have many selves and one body, U__________S stands up for the idea that we have one self but multiple bodies.

U__________S is a love story about us. About what is happening inside and around individuals. After everything is said, we still live -and perhaps try to survive- in the same place that we call Earth. So, what about the responsible autonomy that can have an effect on our wider ecology?
