Ofelia Jarl Ortega


B.B. as in b and not a, as in b-side, as in babe, baby, bb, as in Brigitte Bardot, as in two characters and as something that those who know know. A fan fiction to our fans – one in the museum and one on stage – as in baby and butch, as B.B. In this fictitious prequel to her works Forever (2017) and Shredder (2018), choreographer Ofelia Jarl Ortega investigates strategic potentials in objectification, together with composer Patrik Patsy Lassbo and dancer Alexandra Tveit. Through a concert with low-pitch auto-tune singing and seducing moves, they give themselves up to the audience, available for subtle approaches to the techno-erotic sensibility of our times.
