Fitter, stronger, tighter and more beautiful… Now, Now, NOW!
VANITY OF MODERN PANIC – V.O.M.P. holds the mirror up to the botox-stiffened face of our beauty-worshipping society. How far are you willing to go to keep your body younger than what your birth certificate says?
Get ready for a silicone-pumped dance performance about the pursuit of the perfect body. A distorted, disproportionate comedy about the longing for breasts, thighs and buttocks that would make Kim Kardashian green with envy. And a grotesque salute to the Baroque era’s powdered wigs and delicate soap bubbles in a unique mix of modern dance and physical theatre.
Choreographer Gunilla Lind debuted in 2017 with VANITY OF MODERN PANIC – V.O.M.P. Gunilla Lind balances humor and seriousness on a knife edge when she presents current societal trends in a visual explosion of colors and quirks. With experimental costumes, she challenges the way we perceive ourselves and others – in a mix of modern dance and physical theater. Gunilla Lind’s choreographic universe revolves around identity, self-staging, gender roles, body and beauty ideals.
