THE PRESSING

With her solo THE PRESSING, the dancer and choreographer Dani Brown picks up where her solo HOW DO YOU IMAGINE THE DEVIL? left off. With THE PRESSING, Brown addresses a current feminist tendency to portray the vulva not just as a female sexual organ, but as an empowering and creative mediator of (female) self-reliance and self-contained strength. Conceived as a duet with her own vulva, Brown seeks expressive possibilities of this anatomically and socially complex organ. What could a vulva-oriented/cunt-centric performance look like? Could a movement principle generated from the perspective of the vulva leave the dualistic gender difference behind and pursue the principle of dedication present in all forms of life?
