People who have saved this event:


This UK premiere, ‘Shapes of States’, traces the historical and political writing of the body by connecting Swedish public health ideologies from the 1920s with contemporary training ideals


With a starting point in Meyerhold’s biomechanics, the dancers in ‘Shapes of States’ develop a movement vocabulary far from any idea of natural behaviour. In a series of dances, they tell the broken story of a human belief in the disciplining of the flesh. This performance is visually described by the dancers and suggests interpretations of what is happening on stage, what is happening in the world and what is happening in our fantasy. Performance and visual interpretation: Sandra Lolax, Sindri Runudde, Andrea Svensson and Stina Nyberg. Set design: Tove Edlund Dreiman. Light design: Josefin Hinders. Costume: Tove Edlund Dreiman and Sandra Leandersson.
