‘The works of the flesh are manifest’

In a room, whose door must be left open, Anna D. plays many times herself ...

Are you true to your sexual self?







. .

Through autofiction, Anna D. explore how her sexual experiences is shaped by imposed socio-political structures and how she might resist these structures. Anna D. solution: treat lust and intimacy as a celebratory act of self-care.

Her answer departs from her diary entries, illustrations and poetry staged in movement.

'The Works of the Flesh Are Manifest' (TWOTFAM) focuses on the art of creating intimacy on stage and the power relations that it reproduces.

'TWOTFAM' is an invitation to honour your erotic self from interconnectedness. It is a carnal celebration of word and movement as an antidote to invisibilisation and humiliation. 

 'it's my party and I cry or come if I want to...'

Anna and Fanny who collaborated on the performance, got to know each other thanks to their work at the inclusive dance company Platform-K, which creates professional productions with dancers with and without disabilities. They find each other not only in their shared love of movement, but also in the research topics that fascinate them as performers and makers, such as sexuality and intimate citizenship.

'TWOTFAM' is a relaxed performance. With a relaxed performance, we give a warm welcome to everyone, especially those who find it difficult to fit into standard theatre conventions: people with learning or movement disorders, autism and neurological conditions, or people with Tourette's,... So the performance runs in a flexible atmosphere and in a caring and relaxed environment. All vocalisations, gestures and movements of the audience during the show are kindly received. A rest room is also provided for spectators who need a break.
