PERFORMATIK19 VIDEO | Alexis Blake - Allegory of the Painted Woman

Alexis Blake selected a series of female poses found in artworks from the Renaissance to early Modernism and created a choreography and performance that explores subjectivity and examines gender and representation through embodiment, repetition and sound. Two dancers and four musicians in the Horta Hall at BOZAR will abstract the poses, strip them of their history and context, and confront the viewer to address, contradict and question preconceived notions of a body.

Alexis Blake selecteert een reeks vrouwelijke poses uit kunstwerken van de Renaissance tot het vroege modernisme, en creëert een choreografie/performance die subjectiviteit, gender en representatie onderzoekt via belichaming, herhaling en geluid. Twee danseressen en vier muzikanten betreden de Hortahal van BOZAR en strippen de houdingen van hun geschiedenis en context.
