CocoonDance invites you to dance. So bend down and let the ground on which you stand reflect your standardised body!

The standard dance isn't just a medium for social etiquette or the expression of a cultural conversion of desire into decency. Ballroom dancing expresses the arrangements, hierarchies and also consequently the whole brutality of civilisation and its normativity.

CocoonDance rethinks the standardised body images in standard dancing in order to overcome them. The resulting alien creatures lead us into a world of wavering elegance. The newly formed and dancing body is able to make its social construction just as conscious as our freedom to reinvent ourselves in new forms over and over again.
