PoLy-Mirrors is opening up slanted looks, tilted heads, tangent necks, twisted bodies. Two dancers and two (jazz-) musicians communicate through a shared rhythmic vernacular, allowing to disrupt straightness, leaning into queerness. They perform a polyrhythmic glissando into a diagonal feminine state of being, asking:  (How) do diagonals – created between and by body parts – perform femininity?
Together with Elias Stemeseder, Evi Filippou, Margaux Marielle-Tréhoüart and Amie Jammeh, choreographer Naïma Mazic wants to reclaim and re-signify the gestures of feminine diagonals. To embody them, to own and transform them, by giving them the chance to perform through any()body and to re-orient our lines of sight across identity.
In PoLy-Mirrors, the visual artist Lola Drubigny is creating a space for reflections of gender and a place for the mirroring of dance and music. Within this room, one subject is fixed, the other takes off, orbiting in circles and emerging into queerness. PoLy-Mirrors questions an imposition of diagonal lines on the female body throughout art history until today, that might represent the projection, eroticization and fetishization of a desired strangeness, a mystified seductiveness into a ritual of submission.

THE NEW TRAILER OF—-> infectious 

©n ï m company/ Anja Beutler/ infectious

https://vimeo.com/359888038

What does it take for dance and jazz music to be folding in love again, today? 3 dancers and 3 jazz musicians attempt to get closer by sharing the same polyrhythmic language.

House dancers, contemporary dancers and jazz music infect each other and anybody who is watching through the immediate corporal tension of the pulsating uneven rhythms, whose embodiment gives breath to the groove which spreads from all sides, at every angle, to every degree. Dancers realize an unfamiliar improvisational independency and musicians learn how to see, touch and hear dance.

infectious is how you join the conversation that jazz has always been speaking, the cypher which has always meant everything and nothing.
