The Plague of Desire
A conceptual and visceral dance performance
Date: 31.05.17 – 03.06.17
Venue: Der Acker Stadt Palast
In a cathartic performance, The Plague of Desire: Portrait of a Disgusting Pig as Performed by 3 Sexy Bitches, three women explore the theme of desire through dance. In chaotic and orderly moments of physicality, the dancers expand on a male stream of consciousness, grappling with sexual urges and the culturally cultivated attitude of men towards women. Director and choreographer Jahman Davine considers philosophical and psychoanalytic theories to construct a performance both conceptual and visceral.
