Ne me dis pas que tu m’aimes
A karaoke bash. A pool party. A night at the club. But really a musical comedy set to Navet Confit’s songs. This deconstructed dance is a patchwork of contemporary jazz, a colourful pop aesthetic, synchronized swimming, animalistic movement, artificial gestures, absurd texts, soft melodies, and overconsumption of stuff. We’re talking about the psychology of consumption. Where are we going with this? Will we come out winners or losers? A symbol of eternal dependence, a luxurious stuffed dog keeps popping up. This is serious.

Release Technique (2011) (projection vidéo)
While injured, Freya was investigating digital bodies when she came upon the free online game platform Falling Woman, which called to mind Skinner Releasing Technique. She was thinking about the limits of the body, labor and ready-made movement, and looking at methods of training and disciplining bodies. This exhausting and exhilarating study of the body’s relationship to gravity in cyberspace will either strike you as soothing or make you queasy. This video is part of the Keystroke Choreographies series.
