Crepuscle (Twilight) explores the exigencies of dance, eroticism, cultural
restriction, and arousal; it was edited from over a dozen segments in Geneva.
The work tenders the null-point of language, a point where words stutter, where
the body takes over, where cultural tropes are transformed and lost. It's the
deliberate creation of repressed memories. It challenges the conventions of
dance - turning dance inside-out. For the three of us, it's the culmination of
an erotic element in our work that has all been lost in contemporary culture.
Crepuscle rides the muscle of the body and jouissance, opening a territory
which remains virtual, haunting.
A number of short works with Foofwa, shot in Geneva, Gruyeres, and the
Aletsch Glacier in the Swiss Alps, will also be shown.
