Snip snap snude [2009]

Snip Snap Snude – a poetic and sensuel dance with death. Collaboration with choreographer Helle Bach and Signe Klejs

The performance Snip Snap Snude looks death in the eye, in a pure sensory bombardment, where the individual vision of death is merged with the different cultural perceptions of end of life. The dancers living body is playing with virtual visual elements and death as the eternal dance partner.

Snip Snap Snude puts a perspective on our view of death – yours, mine and the neighbors!

The performance is a collage, which, through visual tableaux and ultra-short soundscapes examines and compares selected Western symbols and cliches about death with reality. Snip Snap Snude sheds light on our traditions, our squeamishness and our taboos in relation to death but not without cracks for optimism. Life must be lived just as death must be met – the two are dependent on each other.
