SMACK

Choreographers and performers

Olivia Edginton, Vera Ilona Stierli & Ingvild Marstein Olsen

A multimedia performance that positions the influence of pop culture on the portraits of three women, which emerged from conversations around common memories of youth. A dialogue between the digital camera and the female body, where the actual body and the digital image of the body are in conversation. In SMACK nostalgia and criticism, awkwardness and physical agency are explored. The dichotomy of wanting to embrace and wanting to reject serves as the basis for the production.

Performed at Chisenhale Dance Space, London 2018.
