Tipperary Dance presents VIS MOTRIX & ATLAS da BOCA

VIS MOTRIX creates some strange as well as fascinating beings. The dancers seem to come from another world, they move through space and merge into an organism, a mixture of human being and machine, creating a hypnotic power that one cannot escape.

What is the driving force, the soul [Vis Motrix] behind the movements of these hybrid beings? With this production, Cocoon Dance continues its research into the “unthought” body: transhumanism as a traumatic round dance that does not leave our unconsciousness untouched.

ATLAS da BOCA explores two trans bodies through the mouth. As a symbol, the mouth becomes the interface between the public and the private, between the erotic and the political, between silence and the lasting word. Questioning the ‘word-gestures’, this piece delves into the moments in which the mouth hardens, letting the words come out roaring.
