RHYMES OF PLEASURE (RoP)
Nefeli Oikonomou with Aleksandar Georgiev and Mira Mutka
Rhymes of Pleasure (RoP) is a poetic account that stretches the bondings of articulation, movement and historicities, placing them in non-normative relationships. Shifting between using rhymes as soundscape, as material, as riddle and as dialogue it creates situations for the body to expand its modes of coexisting.
RoP proposes choreographies in which our own rhymes, moves and beats transit in collaboration, creating a unique mix between a poetry slam, a lust jukebox and a performance concert.
RoP examines different ways of reading, creating and performing poetry that suggests choreography as means to transforming the body's politics. This project wishes to expand on theories of performativity and disassemble elements of the theater, providing the opportunity for various dance-poetic proposals.
