DANCE BITCH DANCE

dance solo >>> essen, germany >>> 2018

this piece, like famous “trio A” by yvonne rainer, or like legendary fad choreography “the macarena”, has no meaning behind, it is a semiotic fata-morgana >>> probably, it is about joy of dancing; i like to dance it in front of people >>> i like to look into the eyes of the audience member, when the lights turns on >>> i enjoy my naked torso, i enjoy pain in quadriceps that comes inevitably after the first minute in the reléve-plié position >>> i enjoy moving for seven minutes without stop, and I enjoy to sweat
