Production Details / Press Releases
Inspired by Monique Wittig’s Le Corps Lesbienne and Octavia Butler’s novel Parable of the Sower, SHOWDOWN imagines episodically the meeting and co-existence of two individuals. In a strange and at the same time provisional-hopeful environment, the two dancers Nanna Stigsdatter Mathiassen and Judith Förster find opportunities to meet.

With reference to the worlds of Neo-Western and Survivalism, in SHOWDOWN the line between duet and duel, collaboration and sabotage becomes blurred.
