Ellen Furey & Malik Nashad Sharpe (CA)

SOFTLAMP.autonomies

What a dream: One day, everything will be fine! For real. But without dancing and vaporwave it may not come to that. The art and music movement called vaporwave is “the gigantic natural aunt” of Ellen Furey from Montreal and London-based New York dance artist Malik Nashad Sharpe. They transform into two white-clad figures for this gender-fluid duet. The couple dance to a voice that sends Yung Hurn’s endlessly looped dreams of and appeals to togetherness into space: “Baby willst du chillen und so / Flieg mit mir durch Wien und so” (Baby, you wanna chill and stuff / Fly with me through Vienna and stuff). They emerge from the darkness of the dance floor until they reach a deep blue in which they abandon themselves completely in the rhythms of their unison movements. This hypnotic dance trip through the spheres of the now is also to be understood as a resistance movement, which Furey and Sharpe invoke a future without authorities and constraints.
