LIVEWORKS 2017 | CORPONOMY

PRESENTED BY PERFORMANCE SPACE & THE ART GALLERY OF NEW SOUTH WALES, AVANT-PREMIERE

SUN 22 OCT, 5:30PM

 

 

Eisa Jocson (Philippines) returns to Liveworks, after wowing audiences with her trilogy of works Death of the Pole Dancer, Macho Dancer and Host in 2015.

Corponomy is a new performance lecture that reflects on entertainment, labour and fantasy-production that drive Jocson’s work. From pole dancing to macho dancing; from hostess to princess studies, Jocson’s performances unpack identity and gender formation, seduction politics and Filipino social mobility.

Drawn from the artist’s personal archive of research material, Corponomy is a documentation of movement transmission and training, and a live demonstration of different systems of physical exercise that transform the body.

Eisa Joscon

 

Latecomers will not be admitted. Duration of 60 minutes. Corponomy is commissioned by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Singapore for da:ns festival

    MACHO DANCING WITH EISA JOCSON
    FRI 20 OCT, 2:00 – 5:00PM

     

    Macho Dancing is performed by young men in nightclubs for male – as well as female – clients. Eisa Jocson will lead a masterclass to teach this unique and physically demanding dance vocabulary breaking down its techniques and mannerisms. Eisa will also give insight into the social phenomena particular to the Philippines that create the conditions for macho dance. Queer and female dancers are particularly encouraged to participate!
