Cherish Menzo, Frascati Producties & GRIP i.s.m. De Coproducers

Body can you become hypothetical, a galaxy, in full gear acceleration, a liquid star monster, failing to die?

In her new creation, Cherish Menzo and her onstage partner Camilo Mejía Cortés look for ways to detach their bodies from the way they are perceived and the daily reality in which they move. Among other things, they look up to the sky, at dark matter and at black holes that meet and collide to give birth to a new, (afro)futuristic and enigmatic body.

DARKMATTER  wants to create a thorough reshuffle of our atoms, looking for a new form for – and way of looking at – our body and the complex outside world to which it relates. 

Would you like to attend this performance as well as Double Bill in AINSI. Then book your shuttle from Theater aan het Vrijthof - AINSI - Bordenhal - Theater aan het Vrijthof here.

Just as in her previous project, JEZEBEL, Menzo stretches her movement language further by applying the the Chopped and Screwed method to her movement language. A remix technique from hip-hop music in which the tempo is sharply reduced. By stretching the notions of time, the register changes and the performing body manages to generate new readings. 

Parallel to the performance there will be Distorted Rap Choir trajectory. At each location, a dozen local people of colour are invited to take part in lab-workshops working on themes from  DARKMATTER . At the end of the lab-workshop the choir will record a rap anthem, which will be integrated into the performance. On every location a new choir and therefore also an extra layer will be added.
