The presentation of We are the monsters in Bucharest is supported by the NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ (NPN) International Guest Performance Fund for Dance, which is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media on the basis of a decision by the German Bundestag
We are the monsters represents a microcosm of society where different creatures inhabit a shared space. This space is a landscape built out of cardboard boxes; in contrast to the figures, these objects suggest the ‘homemade’ and an experience of everyday life.
My interest in monstrous form and transformation stems from an attempt to reach beyond the limitations of the human form to create new bodily images, physical logics and ways of moving. Monstrous figures are created when the human body is turned upside down, back to front, distorted, extended and dissolved by devices such as extra limbs and costuming. These new representations are opening up an imaginary field and an experience of perceptual shift for the viewer.
