There is a story that tells of Beauty and the Beast’s fascination with their own shadow. They kept looking at it, scratching it, pecking at it, fisting it, burning it, licking it, until their shadow woke up, became alive and ate them. Beauty and the Beast are now “DEAD”.
For more than two decades the duo Beauty and the Beast, Amanda Apetrea and Halla Ólafsdóttir have remained a mythical force in dance and have created new lyrical expressions with their gravelly voices and poetic dances – musing over love, heartbreaks, friendship and togetherness, war, death, and sex.
Their show, DEAD, is a pornographic and dystopian dance performance that merges dance, poetry, music, the beauty of darkness and the in-between, seeing inner and outer realities. Exploring expressions of sexuality, body and gender flirting with the power of horniness and lust. A power that they believe can move mountains.
The show will be performed under consent in agreement with its audience, which means that anyone who enters agrees to whatever will happen during the show. It also means that anyone can leave at any time. As always it is about you and them and all the love in between.
DEAD is presented as part of the program POPDEATHPOWER by Dansehallerne x Betty.
