OFFTA 2023 | What if Hansel Consented to Being Baked Alive? + FANM: prier sur le ring
What if Hansel Consented to Being Baked Alive?
May 27th and 28th performances will be in English
“Consent is hot” is a generally agreed-upon maxim. But what about when we consent to intimacy we don’t enjoy, when we are motivated by facets other than pleasure, such as money, or simple curiosity? Delving into perverse narratives combined with fairytale motifs, Michael Martini constructs a performance hybridizing video and text, while working with the through-line of a single prop: his own oven.
FANM: prier sur le ring
Standing on a stage, a pastor is preparing to deliver a speech. At first grandiose, the statuesque body gives in to fractured movements, at once human and creature-like, as doubt arises and this character’s beliefs are transformed.
Based on an exchange of memories between performer and choreographer, this work in progress is a nostalgic and complex exploration of the Afro-descendant woman’s body. Between the enigmatic and the caricatured representation, what perception can emerge in the observer’s eye?
