Body Parts, dir. Ramona Nagabczyńska

Body Parts is the outcome of a choreographic fascination with the face. The performance looks into both its anatomy and physiology and its ability to be an ever-changing image which generates meaning, emotion and identity.

Traditionally, the face is considered to be the interface of a human being’s psyche and its discourse is charged with romantic phrases. The face is a body part that we pay particular attention to and one which generates a great amount of empathy via motor neurons. Meanwhile, as with any other body part, its use and reception changes under the weight of history and specific cultural norm.

Where did contemporary dance’s obsession with the neutral face come from and what is this neutral face? What is the connection between the grotesque and female subjectivity? What does the contemporary choreography of the face tell us about cultural oppression?
