Programme

Simone Aughterlony & Jorge León

Uni * Form

DancePerformance

75min

Director Jorge León and choreographer Simone Aughterlony question our relation to power by gathering all the practices which tend to structure human behaviour. Seven performing artists of different ages, heights and pasts, are all dressed as police officers: they intra-act in a monochrome environment, caught by the audience that surrounds them. The organic piece is invaded by a sound space full of electronic music and samples organized by Hahn Rowe. "Uni * Form" speaks about the mistrust regarding ruling power, about the individual standardization, about alienation and verbal or non-verbal relationships. This work is committed, blunt, powerful, provocative and dreadfully funny.
