PERFORMANCES

LAY DOWN AND LIFT ME UP

PERFORMANCE

Everywhere you look, there are tables set for two, multiple beds are outnumbered, and even marriage is for two only. But more is possible. In this intimate performance about relationships, Speels Collectief asks Cupid all ins and outs. From dinners-for-three, monogamy and self-marriage to polyamory for better or for worse: every colour of the rainbow is covered in a performance that looks behind the front door and between the sheets. We celebrate the multiplicity that coexists. Mischievous and personal, swirling and sweating, we are guided by our curiosity about How Everyone Actually Does It.

USUALLY I'M ON TOP

PERFORMANCE

In a world in which perfect pictures blur the image of reality, Speels Collectief smashes the ideal image. USUALLY I’M ON TOP questions prevailing norms of femininity and sexuality. Vulnerable and grotesque, in word and body, seven women take you along in their experiences and desires. In a search for a new morality (or the absolute rejection of it) we arrive at ‘what she really really wants’.

ACTS

Sensual dance trio

ACT

The scene with the sensual dance trio from performance USUALLY I’M ON TOP has been turned into a separate performance. This short act questions our current norms and perspectives of femininity and sexuality. During the act three women play with the concept of dominance, a rope and a wheelchair. The wheelchair is used as a sensual object rather than just a mobility aid.   

Hoist DUET

ACT

The hoist duet scene from performance LAY DOWN AND LIFT ME UP has been turned into a separate performance. In this dance duet two performers investigate – one of which uses a hoist – alternative forms of intimacy. By doing so they question our current norm and perspectives of intimacy and sexuality. The hoist is used both as a sensual object and a medical device.
