-life is an need of an exorcism…

Exorcism#1 is the beginning of a series of small choreographic works by Sarah Armstrong, which seek to explore the notion of gnostic and transformative acts. An attempt to execute a modern day exorcism from the culture of habit and path. To evoke a new identity of self in the present. 

 

Sarah Armstrong (DK)

Med sin unikke “sarah-armstrong-portraitgå til grænsen” mentalitet i sin kunst, sammensmeltes en sjælden råhed og en stærk sensualitet i Sarah Armstrongs kunstneriske univers. Hun repræsenterer underverdenens væsen i en nutidig kvindekrop og en vulgaritet der i transformationen gennem hendes kunst manifesterer poesi og skønhed.

Sarah Armstrong is an independent artist based in copenhagen working in the field of performance, writing, dance and choreography. She graduated from laban dance university, london and has performed in various performance art festivals and venues during the past years, abroad and nationally. Sarah mostly works in solo contexts, which seek to either explore, damage or celebrate. Her works are concerned with themes such as; fluidity, normativity, power structure, transformation, failure and silliness as another form of wisdom.
