Sheena McGrandles


Tanzplattform Deutschland 2022,,

An abrupt change of direction, a sudden interruption, a wink, passing glances, a fast-forward and a stutter  – FLUSH! Three performers move along or between five chipboard walls and expand everyday gestures into a spectacle of sensual slippy time. Erotic overtones and precise movement patterns in stop, slow and fast motion decouple subtexts and details of urban digital reality from their unambiguous narratives, only to present them in the next moment as oddly familiar.
