A bent back, speaking but there is no mouth. Arms doing their own thing. Legs swinging around by themselves. Until, on the lower of the back, a mouth peeps out of the trousers. Do all those body parts belong together? And where is the head? From the darkness, finally only a voice resounds, like a thunderous eruption from deep within. 

In his solo debut, Milø Slayers explores the boundary between man and monster. Monstrare et/ou Monere is a living triptych about the potential of monstrosity - not in a Hollywood way, but as a deeper consciousness that wants to wriggle out of fixed categories. Can identity be fluid? Where are the boundaries between the 'normal' (normative) body and a body that is experienced as deformed, monstrous? Slayers merges his choreographic background in hip-hop with the structures of abstract contemporary dance, under a play of light that constantly distorts known human relationships. 

Milø Slayers is part of the dance company Slayers and studied 'art and choreography' at ISAC in Brussels until 2020. With Monstrare et/ou Monere we welcome Milø Slayers to the Kaaistudio's for the first time.

In 2015, an X-ray scan revealed that beneath the layers of paint on Kasimir Malevich's famous Black Square hid a racist inscription. Even the supreme abstraction does not appear to be free of politics. Within the lines of a highlighted square, three black performers now turn this tension on its head, seeking an incantatory counterbalance to sharp binary oppositions such as light and dark, reason and feeling, certainty and uncertainty.
