Eszter Salamon

MONUMENT 0.9: Replay


approx. 110 min.

With her new work “Replay”, the choreographer Eszter Salamon creates a shared space for spectators and performers, where living and non-living architectures, organic and inorganic bodies, material and immaterial intensities coexist to form a polyphonic world. Following her seminal group performance „Reproduction“ (2004) that explored power and desire through bodies continuous reconfiguration, „Replay“ explores touch, opening new perspectives and subjectivities. The performance looks into our largest organ, the skin, as a place of sensing, vibrating, and relating. It also celebrates the pleasure of moving and watching movement undoing certain boundaries linked to social norms. In this sensorial landscape, sensations and visions come together to imagine a new “treatise of pleasure”.
