Dance Floor 2022

Performance by Ana Dubljević, Kasia Kania, Marja Christians

Welcome to the capitalist ruins, dear tourists!
Bring some sun protection, cause we will sweat in the middle of the arena of a former socialist luxury hotel. Haludovo Palace Hotel and the dance floor have been waiting for you and us all. Let’s come together next to the blue, blue sea to listen to our glory holes accompanied by a feminist music album: 700WET risks juicy sounds to seduce our missing libido in pandemic and capitalist ruins.

Let’s stay with the ruins, be wet and weary, silly and horny, angry and depressed. Now and then.
Yours truly,
the self-organized stage creatures

Ana Dubljević, Kasia Kania, Marja Christians met during their Masters: “Choreography and Performance” at the Justus-Liebig-University in Gießen. In the performance „Tender Fights 2020”, and later- “DANCEFLOOR 2022”, they have continued their studies of the body from a queer-feminist perspective, which they began together and in other constellations, e.g. as part of the christians//schwenk collective. With humour and analytical acuteness, the artists use the power of performance to queer familiar patterns of perception and customary images of the body, as they seek to draw attention to power structures.
