Juliana F. May (US)
The more serious the topic, the sharper the humour can get as it becomes a subject of art. New York choreographer Juliana F. May – her Jewish grandmother had to flee from Vienna – is something of a trauma expert in the performance scene on the Hudson River. This motif has had a hold on her for a decade now; she keeps examining it from different perspectives. The piece is also about physical control and the complicated interconnections between perpetration and victimhood. To confront their slumbering traumas, the performers talk about sexual violence as well as the passing on of existential shocks to children and grandchildren in this intense work. With derisive pop songs, by singing together and in seemingly trivial conversations, the group tackles the damage that exists in many of us and can eat away at a person’s mind unnoticed.
