Flowers wither, fruit rot and glass break. Nothing is forever. The title VANITAS refers to baroque still life paintings where the things are staged to symbolize both impermanence and vanity. The performance will take you into a dark and dreamy world of queer bodies and symbols ruled by change. Here you will meet the precariousness of finding intimacy and meaning in a landscape dictated by binaries. This performance is a tribute to queer and trans communities everywhere and to those who most be in flux to be whole.
Jules Fischer studied Fine Arts, Dance, Choreography and Performance in Copenhagen and Portland. Their practice is centered around large-scale performances with professional dancers, performers and singers. Jules creates immersive experiences through different media, always involving a multitude of perspectives, senses and bodies. They are interested in basic feelings such as love, loneliness and grief, but always from an ambivalent and queer perspective. Playing with leveling or reversing hierarchies and power structures in all aspects of a piece is central for Jules, as well as working in many different collaborations.
