7 DEADLY SINS: GLUTTONY

Koncertkirken Blågårds Plads, Copenhagen

November 2016

Collaborating as dancer, performer, choreographer and set designer with award-winning Japanese concert pianist Eriko Makimura on projects exploring the 7 deadly sins through classical piano repertoire and performatively staged concerts.

 

Through classical piano pieces by De Falla, Prokofiev, Chopin, Cage and Stravinsky and through dance, words, singing and nonsense rituals all created for this piece, the concert performance was a personal and open-ended questioning of what the deadly sin GLUTTONY means in this day and age.

Something moves and grows from within a black tulle costume. It’s a body, twisting, squirming and wiggling inside the fabric. Like a silkworm in its cocoon. A simultaneously scary and fascinatingly beautiful image…

The concert-performance Gluttony is more than the unfolding of baroque, over-the-top-expressions, its is also an excellent attempt at relating the term to today’s materialism and overconsumption
