"For in this dance the people do not move. Desire moves. Eros is a verb."

Anne Carson, Eros the bittersweet.

In "Shaking the libidinous" I look at the intertwining of choreography, context and the erotic, trough performative practices.

 

The work is a performative installation. It is constituted of: a sound and video installation of screen recordings showing an editing practice on erotic literature excerpts, a movement score performed by 3 dancers and a book where the elements of the work are weaved together.
