“Eke is an acutely intelligent choreographer and performer: conceptually and in execution, Body of Work is as thrilling and astonishing as any of her previous performances. Her work inevitably delights, appalls, amuses and challenges.” -Liza Dezfouli, Australian Stage

Body of Work is a dance that questions its right to contemporaneity: what is the contemporary? What is new? What is now? What is present? It does this by producing a new relationship between performance and the function of its video documentation.

 


In partnership with

Maison-des-Arts-de-Crteil







The performance operates as an allegory of how the 'present' is constituted by the rewriting of the past and strategies aiming at success in the future. Through analysing the 'present' as a loop, Body of Work unfolds as an infinite present, a present always already there and continuing on into the unknown future.

Body of Work operates as a hybrid, a synthesis of biological organism and technical machine; a cyborg blurring the lines between who choreographs and who is choreographed.
