Part of the program POPDEATHPOWER by Dansehallerne x Betty.
It’s a slippery slope. A volatile experience. It can change in a second. We witness them cornering themselves, doing it to each other, luring each other into a cavity. There, a constructed solidarity in a play of gymnastic interventions; a reassemblage takes place. It’s like a machine where you can join in, it just keeps on going.
To the sound of snare drums, three dancers are immersed in complicated power dynamics. It’s fraternal incest at its core, pleasurable bullying, and hard-shelled fantasies.
Hegemony is a dance piece by choreographer Ofelia Jarl Ortega developed together with dancers Darío Barreto Damas, Andrius Mulokas, and Paolo de Venecia Gile.
The performance is presented as part of the program POPDEATHPOWER by Dansehallerne x Betty.
