Cléopâtre - OPEN STUDIO SHOWING 1

Wednesday September 26 2018 at 18:30

@ Fabrik Potsdam - Schiffbauergasse 10 (studio 4)

Free admission


Cléopâtre is an interdisciplinary performance that honors all those who make a living with their body. A sensuous piece merging live dance performance and documentary film to illuminate the similarities between contemporary dancers and sex workers in Montreal and Berlin. This platform re-examines the absurdity of conventional judgments of all body workers – whether they work in socially acceptable spaces, such as theatres, or in marginalized spaces, such as strip clubs and brothels. Cléopâtre aims to dispel these myths by creating a wholly new approach to understanding working with the body.

Concept, choreography: Gerard Reyes

Performance: Gerard Reyes, Andréane Leclerc

Video: David J Romero, Michal Andrysiak, Gerard Reyes, Andréane Leclerc

The showing will be followed by drinks and food courtesy of the Office of Québec in Berlin. Please RSVP to frauke.niemann@fabrikpotsdam.de

Gerard would like to thank Fabrik Potsdam, CALQ, Anntenne du Québec à Berlin, Goethe Institut and Circuit-Est for graciously supporting this residency.
