In residency: WAVE company and Junebug Company
Flux Laboratory is pleased to welcome Pauline Raineri and Sophie Amman from February 18th to February 28th to work on their creation: Femmosité.
With this eclectic duo, Sophie Ammann and Pauline Raineri playfully question their relationship to body image, or rather, to the standards of beauty conveyed in a consumer society. Both choreographers explore the way these codes contribute to the notion of identity in creation. Can these values be reclaimed, in order to create characters according to the social environment in which they navigate: self-adornment to reach an idealised version of oneself.
Is the quest for beauty necessarily frivolous? Beyond superficiality, is it possible to find a utility in what is beautiful?
Sophie Ammann and Pauline Raineri create characters to overcome beauty standards and play with them. They become Jo and Alex.
