Performance synopsis

‘Body Parts’ is the outcome of a choreographic fascination with the face. The performance looks into both its anatomy and physiology and its ability to be an ever-changing image which generates meaning, emotion and identity. Traditionally, the face is considered to be the interface of a human being’s psyche and its discourse is charged with romantic phrases. Meanwhile, as with any other body part, its use and reception changes under the weight of history and specific cultural norms.
