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?
