Observing the Supernatural grants access to a shared kaleidoscopic body.
With axes, wood, violin, electronics, and the bare body, Simone Aughterlony, Antonija Livingstone, and Hahn Rowe stage an inquiry into vibrant matters. Human and non-human actants camp together on a hot-pink terrain under an unblinking fluorescent sky. Supernatural suggests a wilderness that signifies a plurality of agencies without ontological hierarchy. Queer lives encourage the dissolution of normative identity patterns. Supernatural actively chops up the topography of gender perceptions and welcomes the joyful techno-construction of multiple bodies and pleasures. Is this movement research or fun post-porn practice? Whatever it is, it brings the bodies and companion materials in conversation to know no difference between being excited, being exciting, and being excited with.
Supernatural is produced by Simone Aughterlony / Verein für allgemeines Wohl with co-production support from Gessnerallee Zürich, HAU Hebbel am Ufer Berlin, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt, Theater Freiburg. Supported by the NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ (NPN) Coproduction Fund for Dance, which is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media on the basis of a decision by the German Bundestag, Stadt Zürich Kultur, Kanton Zürich Fachstelle Kultur, and Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
