INSANITY SOLO

GALLERY VERSION

CONCEPT, CHOREOGRAPHY, PERFORMANCE: Rocio Marano. ASSISTENT, PERFORMANCE: Lea Kieffer, MUSIC: Thomas Proksch. ANTIHOMENAJE DADÁ ( 101 años del Cabaret Voltaire ) BIENAL DE PERFORMANCE DE BUENOS AIRES 2017 – Curated by Emilio Garcia Wehbi and Ricardo Ibarlucía. Mayo 2017

Inspired by “Insanity Workout”, a series of high-intensity home-workout DVDs, Cat Ninja dived into an extreme solo adventure. Combining somatic practices like Feldenkrais and extreme workout to find out strategies and similarities to deal with movement in daily life and tough situations. The “extreme” version of anything is now widely assumed to be an improvement on the original rather than a perverse amplification of it, seeking solace in self-abnegation and suffering. Consequently, she finds a place for a Machine-like mindset with emotional glitches emerging. A subworld of edgy humor and grotesque extravaganza in fitness outfit. Exploring the natural body-releasing rush of hormones (like endorphins, serotonin, estrogen, dopamine, and testosterone) converting her own combination of exercises including face muscles workout into something we could call a DADA dance.
