How to seduce a world
The Posing Project series tell about the art of being, of impressing,
of seduction and the art of modelling a multilayered body with black
humour and ambidextrous virtuosity into a weird and impressive
Impressive stereotypes are advertised to seduce. In this environment
not the pose by itself but the method of posing is the main focus.
Posing Project investigates the art of innovative profiling and its
direct influence on the recipient. It researches cultural patterns of
communication. In this case the pose is the expression of an attitude
which transports complex denotations in a social context.
liquid.loft is interested in the relationship between contemporary
dance and other contemporary art genres and therefore creates its own
forms of development and improvisation.
The current method of working with acoustic spaces on stage can be
read as individual style of liquid.loft.
