“All that goes right” is a result of four dancers coming together who are observing their own actions and perception through language and text building. It is a search for social boundaries and when they are crossed. It’s also a question how these four seemingly harmless personas can carry prejudices that exclude those who are from a different social group. Different ways of thinking are applied, in order to see how exclusion occurs. The interest lies in looking at how a simple opinion can turn into a set of rules among a group. How to transform from being a defined subject into a defining entity?
Biofilm is the accumulating filth between the stove and the cupboard in the kitchen. We know that it’s there, easier to be ignored than to be dealt with. We use the biofilm as a thinking space and give no promises to attempt cleaning it.
We, The Biofilm Sisters, are white heterosexual women admitting to have middle class dreams. We are harmless and adorable, wondering when the border of becoming dangerous is crossed.
