Liisa Pentti: Hauraat silmät – Fragile eyes

Contemporary dance

Fragile Eyes by Liisa Pentti, based on The Laugh of the Medusa (1975) by the French philosopher and author Hélène Cixous, combines dance, text and music.

Fragile Eyes takes the themes explored by Cixous onto the level of performative action and dreamlike logic. The performance in an immersive fabric where the audioscape and situations, new texts and songs inspired by Cixous’ thinking evoke hallucinatory states of being.

The performance, by six performers (e.g. Sonja Ahlfors and Joanna Wingren from the duo Blaue Frau), navigates the borderlines between various performing arts. It highlights the fragility of what has been achieved, but also how the achievements are defended and maintained.
