Cléopâtre is an interdisciplinary performance that honors all those who make a living with their body. A sensuous piece merging live dance performance and documentary film to illuminate the similarities between contemporary dancers and sex workers in Montreal and Berlin. This platform re-examines the absurdity of conventional judgments of all body workers – whether they work in socially acceptable spaces, such as theatres, or in marginalized spaces, such as strip clubs and brothels. Cléopâtre aims to dispel these myths by creating a wholly new approach to understanding working with the body.
Premiere: Montreal, Spring 2019.
