What bodies and which dances are necessary for the present times? What does it mean to be dangerous? Or ‘dangereuses – implying a plural feminine entity?
IIn this choreographic work, six performers understand the risk of intimacy, gentleness and pleasure as a subversive practice and cross it with elements of self-defense, protest, training and preparation for combat. Seeing softness, vulnerability, sensuality, strength and brutality not as opposites, but rather interested in where they meet and how it happens. Taking inspiration from Elsa Dorlin’s writings on violence, and calling in Uses of the Erotics (Lorde) and Pleasure Activism (maree brown) as methodology, the work searches for ways in which we can prepare our bodies for resistance as much as for pleasure and connection.


Julia B. Laperrière and her team work in an intersectional perspective and are interested in trust, respect and love as pillars for artistic collaboration. Composed of artists navigating between many countries and cultures, the mix of languages, places, practices, people and genres —both artistic and identity related— constitute an integral part of their practice. Seeing dance through a queer feminist lense,they believe in the body as a place of change and exchange.
