Cullberg is part of the program pitching their latest work Exposure

Exposure is an affective study of the nude, by the Swiss / Greek choreographer Alexandra Bachzetsis in collaboration with Cullberg. As a choreographer and visual artist Alexandra Bachzetsis has frequently examined the choreographic strategies of the body and how culture provides source material for our gestures, expressions and commodification of fantasy.

In Exposure she’s addressing the stereotypical representation of the body within pop culture, fashion, art and media. This act study, Exposure, reveals elements for performance in endurance, transforming static concepts of power into an empowering language of intimacy.

By constantly shifting the perspective, through the mediation of the body in close up on camera in the space, Bachzetsis creates a parallel reality where our internalized images of the body can find room to dissolve and get liberated.
