Submission in Malmö
Baroque Architecture and Submission is a performance that investigate spaces: imaginary and real, in the body and in architecture. In it two dancers move slowly without interacting with each other. They move from tableau to tableau and we do not know if they are afflicted by inhumane apathy, dumbstruck by a pleasure avalanche or blissfully following a heavenly light in their souls. Baroque Architecture and Submission is born from Choreographer Carima Neusser’s meeting with baroque churches in Central America. Through the spaces and images she investigates how the architecture of the church seeks out infinity, ecstasy and dissolution of the self.
