More than naked
Why would anyone undress on stage?
What can a naked body say?
What can twenty naked bodies say?
...always already say?
In more than naked, twenty naked dancers make their flesh wiggle, wobble, and crack. Their bodies slap against each other, sweating and snapping to dance floor hits and lavish sounds.
Twenty people on stage are more than a group - they are a society. And this society sets itself in motion. As the movement unfolds, Doris Uhlich stands on stage, DJing to the whole event the motto being “Let’s party our body!” more than naked manages to bring to the stage nakedness free of ideology and provocation.
Doris Uhlich was already occupied with making “her flesh” swing in her previous piece more then enough. In the process, she developed a fat-dance technique. more than naked is a consistent continuation of this concern with body discourses, and it blasts away conventional ideas of body, dance, and nakedness with tremendous subversiveness.
The dancers in the project were participants of a workshop, also titled more than naked, that Doris Uhlich gave in 2012 at ImPulsTanz (Vienna - AT).
