[8:tension] Young Choreographers' Series

Maria Metsalu (EE)

Mademoiselle x 

An icy bloodbath. An undead being emerges from the water and gets ready for a bizarre ritual. Be warned: This performance is bound to give some audience members goosebumps, because young Estonian performer Maria Metsalu has created a protagonist from zombie film material. The figure calls herself Mademoiselle x, and she believes that she’s a living corpse. That’s why she has to push herself through a phase of insight-like provocation. Her two assistants are actually dead – life-size dolls, images or petrified alter egos with charred mouths. Smoke swirls through the scene. Candles burn. Madame x moves in circles, repeating her actions. But no need to panic. This isn’t just a horror show but a robust work about femininity, body colonisation and alienation – brilliant soundtrack included.
