Performance synopsis

silk / marble / saliva is a mini-trilogy that explores affection, sexuality and desire from a choreographic perspective, investigating the influence of new media and digital worlds on the experiences of love. ​ silk looks at the act of kissing as a choreography. marble looks at fetish and perversion as choreographies. saliva looks at the nostalgia of post-love.
