Iwa Pele @ Deptford X Fringe Festival 2018

I would like to invite you to my newest collaboration presented @ Deptford X Fringe Festival 2018:

Iwa Pele – a visual dance research collaboration by Kathrin Gramelsberger with Maarten Krielen and Anne Verheij

Iwa Pele is a concept from the Nigerian Yoruba religion and means balanced character. In Iwa Pele three artists go in search of this balance.
Nigerian-German initiator and choreographer Kathrin Gramelsberger explores her mixed heritage.
Inspired by Orisha – deities of the Yoruba people, this visual dance performance combines video art, Nigerian celebration dances and contemporary dance in a distorted way to discuss tradition and identity creating new points of view.

NYMPH()MANIAC: Volumes I and II – Lars von Trier

NymphomaniacNymph()maniac: a must see!

I was in luck to score the last ticket to this film double bill on Saturday 22 February in London, which ended with a live satellite Q&A with Stellan Skarsgård, Stacy Martin and Sophie Kennedy Clark.

This movie is an open conversation. A book with a simple story line and many chapters that invite you to enter the world of Joe. Documentary and fiction style grip you in their frames, frames that switch from 16:9 to 4:3 and more. It also contains collage, still image and multi staging, making it into a minefield for the senses, since you find yourself completely opened up by the inviting rhythm and speed of the movie.
Addressed in this movie are art, femininity, humor, society, lust, masculinity, jealousy, music, love, asexuality, stigma’s, fishing and choices.

No, it is not a porn movie. No, it is not a feminist movie.
Yes, it is a intriguing story, told with a great sense of humor and detail.

Go and see this one of a kind!
