BENEDIKTE ESPERI

Performance / Live Art / Choreography / Dance for Screen


——

every action
comes from somewhere
and continues into next

there is no beginning and no end

every movement can tell us something
it can be used in several ways
and carry its own narrative

gestures and figures

spoken words

duplicated
mirrored
repeated
copied

 ”I use my body to expose and reveal structural violence and oppression through gestures of identity, power-relations and norms. Time, space and body – those are my key elements in my practice and method”
