Slimmer, fairer, tighter, stronger. The play ‘Vanity of Modern Panic – V.O.M.P.’ holds up a mirror against the beauty-obsession’s botox-hardened face. How far are you willing to go to keep your body younger, than what your birth-certificate suggests?
A silicone-pumped play about the hunt for the perfect body; a proportion-distorted comedy about the longing after breasts, thighs and buttocks in the right size. A grotesque greeting to the powdered wigs and delicate soap bubbles of the baroque in a unique mixture of modern dance and physical theatre.
Gunilla Lind Dance Theatre is a Copenhagen based performance group led by choreographer Gunilla Lind. With her playful performances, Gunilla Lind presents a unique mix of contemporary dance and physical theatre. Always with food for thought and a humoristic touch leaving the audience somewhat puzzled and curious. Consistent interests in Gunilla Linds choreographic work are identity projects, group dynamics, gender roles, self-promotion through social media and body image. Gunilla Lind puts a mirror up to society and through quirky characters, odd movements and surprising effects she turns every day tendencies upside down. This makes the audience see everyday topics from a new and different angle. Through unusual costumes Gunilla Lind often de-humanizes the performers in order to challenge the way we perceive other human beings and the way we look at ourselves.
The performance is a collaboration between Momentum Theater and DYNAMO Workspace.
OBS The performance takes place at Theater Momentum.
