VERY IMPORTING by POWDER
Emilie Gregersen & Lydia Östberg Diakité.
VERY IMPORTING is a performance work unfolding the notion of sensuality in close proximity to body, sound and text. Dissolving and renewing ideas of sensuality and femininity. Questioning how to deal with sensuality as a threshold between private and public. Dealing with objectification, history within body, body within history and agency of dance and the dancer.
VERY IMPORTING was initially developed at SKOGEN in Göteborg during a three week residency in April 2017, and was further worked on at The Danish School of Performing Arts as a part of our graduation work. We have latest been working with the concepts through the project “WE ARE DANCERS” which is a performance work we did in collaboration with FANCLUB (DK/SE/NO), DD Dorvillier (US/FR) and Paula Caspâo (P/FR) in October 2017.
