The Perineum Triangle

Time to Meet · Showing by Julian Weber, Lyllie Rouviere
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017

The duet “The Perineum Triangle“ explores the vibrant space between intimacy and formality, abstract sexuality and explicit distance. The performers throw themselves into a journey driven by desire in which the body functions both as material and a vehicle for energetic exchange. The naked and minimal space is contrasted by traditional music from the 17th cen- tury, baroque dances and ornamental flowers, which spread their tempting aroma into the room. In this setting the meeting bodies construct and destroy - as serious as children at play.

Concept, dance: Julian Weber, Lyllie Rouviere | Funded by Senatsverwaltung Kultur und Europa, Tanzfabrik Berlin and in the frame of apap – Performing Europe 2020, co-funded by Creative Europe Programme der EU.
