Sonya Lindfors - Noble Savage (trailer)

is a piece that studies colonialized bodies and racialized representation. In the piece blackness is a mythical, mystical and untamed landscape that both creates and deconstructs meaning. Blackness and the black performers act as terrain for the viewer’s fantasies, dreams, expectations and fears. By facing the viewer’s gaze the work attempts to escape it’s own otherness. It attempts to shake the existing norm and instead recentralize itself.

The piece premiered in May ( 2016) in Zodiak – center for new dance in Helsinki, all thirteen performances were sold out.
