Lou Tilly - In Parenthesis (2011)

DANCE WORKS ROTTERDAM - LIBIDO

LIBIDO searches for the essence of human sexuality. The performance will act as a document which traces the different desires, experiences, behaviors and habits of three individuals on stage: provocative, extreme, uncensored and courageous. LIBIDO addresses our basic animal instincts – our aggression, our need and our desire to prove we exist and will continue to do so.

'How do we make contact?' is the question posed by 'Libido,' a 60 minute opus created in 2010 by David St. Pierre and Andre Gingras for Dance Works Rotterdam.

LIBIDO is a co production of Dave St. Pierre en St. Gingras in collaboration with Dance Works Rotterdam.
Supported by the Performing Arts Fund NL
The setting of this psycho-drama is a grim space somewhere between a warehouse and a slaughterhouse, the protagonists nude dancers Vincent Morelle and Sylvia Camarda, both looking vulnerable in this unforgiving milieu. These two characters proceed to push frustratedly at the limits of sex without reaching even the frontiers of mutual understanding.
Looking as if his very flesh has been forged in blood and fire, Morelle gives an unrestrained and technically dumbfounding performance, at one point scrabbling manically on his back like a wounded insect. He creates the sense of a man who, for all his force and energy, is unable to connect, to grasp what is in front of him - fated not only to see it slip out of his hands, but from under his feet as he slithers and slides through his performance. Even the act of crouching on all fours on a trestle table is, for him, somehow precarious and full of potential pitfalls.
Harried by Morelle, Camarda yet carves out moments of stillness. We see her sitting, pale and lovely, on the table, as serene as a young naked Buddha. Unlike Morelle, she never seems to lose her footing. Even when the two men spin her like a bar of soap, you feel as if their efforts to dislodge her poise are ultimately futile.
Yet there is an irony. For all their sense of mutual alienation, Morelle and Carmada are caught together in the same spreading bubble of oil, sweat and blood. Literally mirroring their contortions, the shimmering, liquid floors remind us of their common humanity. Similarly, references to various bodily orifices and excretions serve to suggest that the flesh itself can never be totally sealed off and enclosed, whatever the state of our hearts may be.
While the material itself may be troubling and problematic, 'Libido' is thoroughly exhilarating as a demonstration of the expressive powers of the performing nude. There is an almost iconic power in the moment when, bloodied knives in hand, Camarda straddles the fallen Morelle and allows her body to morph luxuriously through a series of preying-mantis poses. That she can play this scene masked is an act of bravura, an assertion that the unadorned flesh has come of age as a storyteller.

BURLESQUE

Burlesque is a very old and very popular form of entertainment, which began in the 1840s. It was used by the working class performers as a way to mock the upper classes, their traditions, social habits, culture and fashion and many of the performances were spoofs of operas, Shakespeare and other classic literature and plays.
Burlesque is a literary, dramatic or musical work intended to cause laughter by caricaturing the manner or spirit of serious works, or by ludicrous treatment of their subjects.The word derives from the Italian burlesco, which itself derives from the Italian burla – a joke, ridicule or mockery.
The performances relied on mockery and played to the audience's desire for laughter and lust. Due to the 'naughty' nature of the performances, burlesque usually targeted working class men, but as word spread it drew a wider audience including some women keen to witness this social taboo.
Today however it is more about empowering women, encouraging them to embrace their sexuality and femininity and be confident in expressing themselves in a sensual way.

KONSTANTIN ALEXANDROFF

Konstantin Alexandroff born and grew up in Moscow, where he currently live. he have interests in many art, science and life areas. He is doing photography for more than 5 years. Artistic nudes were his main interest from the beginning. His melancholic temperament, life experience and inner conflicts defined the meaning of his works. He don't usually plan every little detail. He try to create an image, a story and a mood that will go well with the model and her inner world. And so the unique beauty of each person he work with is captured. Despite the nudity he actually consider his works as portraits. As for the naked body, it helps translating emotions and also emphasizes the natural beauty of the model. He is also a founder of the photo-community http://www.dirtyangels.net/, which is generally for the artists like him.

Originally categorized as trip-hop, the group once included producer DJ Shadow and has employed a variety of guest artists and producers. From the sleeve notes for the release End Titles…Stories For Film released in July 2008, the current line-up is stated as James Lavelle and Pablo Clements, also a member of the Psychonauts.





The original line-up was James Lavelle, Tim Goldsworthy (now a member of DFA) and Kudo (Major Force West, Skylab). This incarnation released several EPs and singles, usually involving collaborations with other Mo’Wax affiliated artists.





In 1998, after the departure of Goldsworthy and Kudo, Lavelle enlisted US producer DJ Shadow to help complete UNKLE’s debut album, “Psyence Fiction”. On this album they collaborated with a variety of guest artists including Thom Yorke (Radiohead), Mike D (Beastie Boys), Badly Drawn Boy and Richard Ashcroft (The Verve). The album contained songs which merged indie-rock with hip hop. In 2003 UNKLE released “Never, Never, Land”. At this time UNKLE consisted of Lavelle and new collaborator Richard File, and the album also featured Ian Brown (The Stone Roses), Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age), Robert Del Naja (Massive Attack), Mani (The Stone Roses, Primal Scream) and others.





A third album entitled “War Stories” was released in July 2007. It features collaborations with Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age), Ian Astbury (The Cult), Autolux, Robert Del Naja (Massive Attack), The Duke Spirit, and Gavin Clark, and is far more strongly rock-influenced than previous releases.





The album was preceded by an EP, Nights Temper, of which a limited pressing was released in May 2007. Lavelle has also released several mix albums and remixes under his own name and under the name Unklesounds (together with Richard File).

CALVATO

Fetishesque photographer from Remscheid, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Calvato's photos are strange, unusual but always aesthetic. He calls himself “remaining and available light specialtist” and even deals with hard, unattractive, sometimes direct light - relentlessly. Experiments define situations under same light conditions. He loves the strangest angles, perspectives and cuttings granting his famous note that makes Calvato's breathtaking artwork incomparable. Bondage becomes its own character of fashion, a self-evident key element. With dramatic eye make-up, he places his models into dark corners and let them act their part in front of the camera. It is never about force and violence, he simply wants to tell haunting stories and show gripping but strong bodies that takes the leading part. His work has published in several international magazines and books.

AUTOAGONISTOPHILIA

Autoagonistophilia is a paraphilia consisting in sexuoerotic
 arousal from being observed while engaging in sexual activity,
 or from exposing one's naked body or genitals
to strangers while on stage or on camera.
Unlike exhibitionism, which is intentional, autagonistophiliacs
create situations (like leaving the bedroom or bathroom drapes open)
 in which people can see them in-the-nude if they want to.
 It would be like leaving your curtains open and walking
around the house naked in hopes that someone
would peep in the windows.
It is the thought that someone may be watching that is sexually arousing.

AUTOEROTICISM

Autoeroticism is the scientific term used to describe masturbation,
 the stimulation of the genital organs to achieve orgasm.
The term was popularized toward the end of the 19th century
 by British sexologist Havelock Ellis, who defined
autoeroticism as "the phenomena of spontaneous sexual
emotion generated in the absence of an external stimulus
proceeding, directly or indirectly, from another person.
The most common autoerotic practice is masturbation,
 and the two terms are often used as synonyms.
Although masturbation was widely condemned in
most premodern societies, and has been the subject
of remarkable and persistent superstitions and
extreme taboos, there is evidence that contemporary
attitudes toward masturbation are
becoming increasingly tolerant of this behavior.
Studies in the United States and Europe indicate that
about 90 percent of adolescent and adult males and
about 80 percent of adolescent and adult females
have engaged in masturbation.
While masturbation is usually a private, solitary activity,
 it is often accompanied by fantasies of sexual activity
 that involve another person.
