Back 2 Back is part of IlDance’s 5 years anniversary as an independent and international contemporary dance organization which initiates and operates numerous pioneer projects worldwide.
AN I FOR AN I is a multidisciplinary performance which explores the subjective self. It questions what makes us who we are, and what makes us individuals.
AN I FOR AN I was co-produced by Dansmuseet in Stockholm with the support of Konstnärsnämnden in the beginning of 2016.
The piece reflects on the correspondence between the ever changing physical body and the constant matter within us. What is this grid or frame of "self" on which we hang?
The performance is based on autobiographical events of the cast. They reveal stories, thoughts and ideas related to their past and present, such as pivotal incidents which they feel have led them to be the individuals they are today.
The soundtrack contains interviews with the performers embedded in the original music score by Domenico Angarano.
CATHARSES is a physical, sensual and emotional exploration of various female qualities. It approaches gender as an energy, a spiritual and universal force which is totally freed from the mandatory social constructs.
CATHARSES premiered in Wales (UK) in 2014. It has toured internationally and across Sweden since.
During the creation process, Aloni felt the immense need to invent a new language in order to contemplate on gender identity with a fresh perspective. On the way the word Femaleism was created.
Femaleism is the advocacy for the female form and being. It emerges from the notion that Female is not only a gender which dictates a social status and biological properties. The Femaleism in CATHARSES challenges the limited and discriminating approach towards the female and its significance in our reality.
CATHARSES is a physical, sensual and emotional exploration of various female qualities. It approaches gender as an energy, a spiritual and universal force which is totally freed from the mandatory social constructs. We all contain female in us and are contained by the female around us, how does it suffice?
CATHARSES is a solo piece for two performers. It is a protest of two individuals voicing the one voice of Femaleism. The performers transform into unique beings that cross the gender boundaries into a female dimension.
Back 2 Back offers the audience a sensorial journey which inspires a contemplation about us, humans and our correspondence with our social and political environment.
