HYBRIS, a collection of rap, ballet, twerking and contemporary dance. Can borrowed culture reveal the borrower?
Is "whiteness" clarified as a white body embodies the typical "black"? This is what Jonas Øren wants to explore, when he, as a white, Norwegian, gay man, puts his own privileges on display. Hybris: Choreographing Whiteness debates whether black femininity has an influence in queer performative culture, and whether this is a strategic move - a means of self-affirmation, resistance and unity for queer. Has whiteness been uncritically shaped and choreographed by a need for attitude and strength?
Armour made for the series of shows created by the multitalented Jonas Øren.
