Fitter, stronger, tighter and more beautiful...
Now, now, now… NOW!!
The performance "Vanity Of Modern Panic - V.O.M.P." holds a mirror to our beauty-worshipping society's botox-stiffened face. How far are you willing to go in order to keep your body younger than what is written on your birth certificate?
V.O.M.P. comments on our constant fear of getting older, the fear of being marked as outdated, useless and “down coming” one day. The performance asks why we are busy focusing so much on being young, healthy and fit that we have forgotten to appreciate old age as a natural and rewarding phase of our lives? V.O.M.P. illustrates how deep and caught we are in the consumer society. A Society where everybody is obsessed with making the most of it: We we want it ALL and we want it NOW!
Make yourself ready for a silicone pumped dance performance about our hunt for the perfect body. A body proportion twisted comedy about the longing for breasts, thighs and buttocks that would make Kim Kardashian turn pale in jealousy. And a grotesque greeting to the Baroque era's powdered wigs and delicate soap bubbles in a unique mix of modern dance and physical theatre.
In 2018 choreographer Gunilla Lind received a Reumert Talent Award for this performance.
Age group: From 12 years and up.
