Heroes | Surface of a Revolution

A choreography representing body in relation to power by Khouloud Yassine

This event has finished

“Heroes (Surface of revolution)” is a choreographic creation focusing on the subject of representations of the body in relation to power. It questions the body as a medium of influence that is mediatised through the image of itself. Is it power that creates the image within us? Or is it rather we, masses thirsty for leaders, who create and maintain it? How does someone’s body become a symbol of power? How, by the body’s own fall, is the fall of power announced? How do the changes in the image of a hero, an icon or an idol operate? What about this disturbing feeling that is profoundly destabilising when we attempt to hold on to, or let go of, a power that is in the midst of this decline? Heroes become “accessible” and more easily identifiable as their bodies resemble ours more and more. Is this not an illusion?
