BODY MACHINES (KROPPSMASKINER) is a the latest dance piece by choreographer Sebastian Lingserius. An analysis, and performance that speculates on alternative livelihood, hybrids, cyborgs, rats, queer-chauvinists, and childishly adult children. A piece that promises four delicate dancers, robots, surveillance cameras, and a radio-controlled tank, in a large scenic jitter bug.
A work about identity, but that also flirts with the machinic in our existence. Improvisation-structures that re-codes our way of being and interacting on. Movements that are both physical and mental, slipping over both country borders and ideologies, and attempts new ways for how our bodies can re-direct and fool our thoughts.
Project supported by: The Swedish Arts Council, The City of Stockholm, and Stockholm County Council. Premiered in Dansens Hus in Sthlm Sept 2017. Tour in 2018 to Falkenberg/Sweden, Kristianstad/Norway and Manila/Philippines.
