FIEBRE is a choreographic work departing from a fictional landscape exploring a sensual gooey material. Fiebre comes from a desire of creating an intimate, inceptive space where three dancers progressively explore the possibilities of a viscous and sentimental apparatus. Moving through trajectories of physical states, erotic togetherness, sexuality, sincereness and rawness.
FIEBRE intends to imagine other ways of being together for thresholding and transformation. Eroticism becomes a source of empowerment where desire, disgust and alienation are free to coexist and feed each other.
FIEBRE is built on cooperation and care, the work relies essentially on the group. Re-framing the inherited hierarchies of the different parts of labour in such a work and their respective visibilities aiming to shake up structural ways of putting cheer to the singular author.
The piece won the Young Choreographers’ Award at Impulstanz festival in 2021.
FIEBRE is taking place 1 & 2 October
