With the production of “Hold On!”, Cologne choreographer Céline Bellut delves into the world of female* fantasies of lust and desire with an interdisciplinary ensemble. Her feminist reading of physicalness and images, pointing out the long cultural history of suppression of the female* sexuality, could hardly be any more topical. In movement installations, sound experiments and “scores” leading to absurdly complex improvisational tasks, she relishes in narrating, with fine humour, a fantastical world.
Following her graduation at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Céline Bellut lives in Cologne. Within Now & Next, the platform for budding choreographers at tanzhaus nrw, she presented “Pop It!” in 2017, offering an undisguised vision on the sexualisation of female* bodies in popular culture. During the 2018/ 2019 season, she took part in the tanzhaus nrw-initiated exchange project “Constructing Collaborations”. Within the framework of the Double Bill programme format, “Hold On” will open as her first proper production at tanzhaus nrw towards the end of 2019.
tanzhaus nrw dates: Fri 13.12. + Sat 14.12. 2019, as part of the Double Bill programme format
