Clean Bastards


Premiere February 2022

Clean Bastards

Are you also tired of hours of scrubbing the floor, doing the laundry, wiping down kitchen and bathroom surfaces, and tidying up all toys, books, and clothes? Are you done with stretching in all directions bending over to reach for the dirt in your house? Making a mess is easy, however cleaning it all up is a big effort that we sometimes wish to avoid.

Challenging the borderline between a performance and a self-help course, three dancers take the physcial act of cleaning under the loop. By bringing this act to the foreground and considering the importance of it, Clean bastards wishes to make a homage to cleaners and all of us that contribute in this fundamental part of our society.
