UTOPISISTAS
 

1/2




2Squared (working title)
Premiere: 20.10.2021, Tanzhaus Zürich

In 2Squared, a humorous performance that interweaves dance and speech, two pairs of imaginary clone sisters orbit around the question of what exactly constitutes the self. Matilda Bilberg (SE), Jenna Hendry (CH), Maria Teresa Tanzarella (IT/SE) and Nerea Gurrutxaga (ES) wonder whether an independent I even exists and invite the audience to reflect upon individuality versus the collective in respect to critical discourses that understand both directions as an extreme: an over-individualization of societies as well as a standardization of the individual to form uniformed societies.

 

Together we try to merge into a multiple being with a collective body and a shared consciousness. We wonder what would happen if individuality was dissolved, if there were no individuals left: What if the concept of self could be completely abandoned?
 

UTOPISISTAS is the collective by Matilda Bilberg, Jenna Hendry, Nerea Gurrutxaga and Maria Teresa Tanzarella.
