Clashes Licking + Spongebabe in L.A. (4 love & anxiety) 

Two solos exploring the body, its gender identity, and its hybridity.

Drawing on Nijinsky’s Afternoon of a Faun, Catol Teixeira revisits this character in Clashes Licking, embodying a mysterious creature in a choreography that is as meticulous as it is enigmatic.

In her pieces, Mercedes Dassy questions the new wave of ultra-connected, hper-gendered feminism. Both a concert and a dance performance, Spongebabe in L.A. is a self-portrait of an artist in the midst of a renaissance.
