How to surrender oneself to be moved by someone else?
How to be moved by a thing rather than your own will?
One part strange spectacle on ice, one part slimy orgy. In Fluids, bodies are vulnerable, limited, and dissolve into each other.
In Fluids W A U H A U S creates an impossibly slippery stage for the bodies of the performers. The performance is enabled by J-Lube, a lubricant that creates a movement language continuosly fluxuating between clumsiness and gracefulness. Fluids invites the audience to encounter empathy, intimacy, and failure.
Fluids is a first time collaboration between the Finnish arts collective W A U H A U S, and Estonian dance production house Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava (STL). The performance features Estonian dancers Joanna Kalm, Karolin Poska, Sigrid Savi, Joonas Tagel and Swedish actress Salla Loper. The choreography for Fluids is created by Jarkko Partanen ja Anni Klein, scenography by Samuli Laine and sound design by Heidi Soidinsalo.
