Clean Bastards [2022]


Premiere February 2022

En rengjørings-dans

Clean Bastards:

In Clean Bastards three dancers take on the physical act of cleaning under the loop.

Cleaning is unavoidably a part of all our lives regardless of social class or status and is being performed all over the world every single day.
By bringing this act to the foreground Clean bastards wishes to make a homage to the workers, the helpers, the cleaners and all of us that contribute in this fundamental part of our society.

Clean Bastards is a performance about an ongoing and endless cycle - a ritual that transits between states of enjoyment, gratification, discomfort, determination, weariness, obligation, serenity and neglect.

…starting, restarting and never ending.
