Silke Z., Laurynas Žakevičius, Airida Gudaitė | die metabolisten x LOWAIR
Choreographer Silke Z. and her ensemble die metabolisten are working on an intergenerational and inclusive stage piece on the theme of desire and utopia in co-production with the company LOW AIR (Vilnius) and their choreographers Laurynas Žakevičius and Airida Gudaitė.
The project LUSTOPIA takes a look at the current gender discourse and the supposedly generation-specific positioning it contains with a focus on the topic of lust. LUSTOPIA poses the question of how desire is bound to a certain age, gender, body or disability and how the living out of desire depends on individual socialisation.
What happens when dancers make themselves available to their desire and get to know it independently of gender identities and generational affiliation? What forms of pleasure or desire do the dancers know (not only in relation to sex)? What taboos do they submit to? Why is male and young desire allowed more than female or old desire?
