A layered dance solo about identity and the performativity of the everyday
With The Mirror Stand, the young French choreographer Stanley Ollivier creates a layered dance solo about identity and the performativity of the everyday. How can you develop your own identity in a history dominated by normative values and systems? How do you shape your specific existence within a universal context? Stanley Ollivier dives into the world of the imagination and looks back at some personal complexes. In a mix of seriousness, exaggeration and absurdity, the performance provides a unique insight into a physical transformation.
