RED

A duet about the controversial side of authenticity on social media

RED - long version

RED takes a humorous look at the controversial side of authenticity on social media. Famous influencers and celebrity starlets call for #selflove and #bodypositivity. At the same time, they show themselves heavily made up, distorted with filters and sometimes operated on or with pumped-up muscles in order to correspond to a certain ideal of beauty. Is that paradoxical ? What does it mean to be yourself in a time where everything can be optimized? What am I doing for myself and what for others? A youtube tutorial on the perfect red lips leads through this humorous dance theater piece. The duet shows society's expectations of the human body. Bodies are actively sexualized, capitalized and politicized. The dancers look for new perspectives, break down prejudices and address their own incorporated stereotypes.

Does feminity mean sexy? Are red lips an invitation to kiss? Two women analyse female stereotypes and fight against cultural inscriptions.
