Performance

Justice Square

What does a dance that wants to seduce an unknown alien body look like? How is the dancer’s body shaped by this attempt?

Weber presents a three-hour-long performance, along with a performer that dances, sings and works with instruments, influenced by his research for his work EXTRA (2019). During the performance, he studies the genre of science-fiction from a choreographic perspective, the construction of the unknown, models of identification, cross-species relationships and their potential for the development of contemporary mating dances. Using the potential of sci-fi to question current subject positions, Weber aspires to present new and different subject constructions that do not necessarily correspond to the norm. The outcome of his research is the development of mating dances that use the power of attraction and imagination as a motor to gain the attention of a potential extraterrestrial audience.
