BODY BUSINESS – 2005
The two choreographers use video footages from common places of the city of Oslo to organise different contexts. These suggested environments make the bodies more vulnerable and exploitable. Questionning the subjectiviness of the viewer, the performance propose a study of our fears and desires as we lose our references.
