RUUPTUUR – CANCELLED

Van28/01 tot29/01/2022 Salle de l’Œil vert

Mercedes Dassy {Brussels}

We are forced to cancel the RUUPTUUR performances scheduled in Liège this week. Indeed, several performers have tested positive for Covid. The show will therefore not be performed. We are looking into the options of rescheduling the show.
The box office will contact all ticket holders as soon as possible to arrange exchanges and refunds.

Mercedes Dassy is a dancer and choreographer who uses her body as a weapon, a tool, an obstacle, a space for exploration, a super object and a vehicle to engage in an all-out battle. The young artist forges a triptych of choreography, politics and aesthetics in order to condense her reflective agitation at the world, which is linked to feminism and naturally grounded in the present. Part of the open performance cycle of her previous solos, i-Clit and B4 Summer (created at the Pays de Danses festival in 2020), RUUPTUUR shifts from the individual to the collective in the form of a feminine quartet. The piece examines the idea of a rupture (whether it is social, personal, political, rhythmic or emotional in nature) as a vital necessity. A liberating nocturnal ritual, RUUPTUUR calls on mythical and futuristic figures – half-divine, half-plastic female cyborg centaurs – to overcome the fear of change and destroy the ambient gloominess.
