"Explicit Content" by Sergiu Matis
Over the course of time dance techniques inscribe themselves – layer by layer – into the body. They become a part of it, dictate its expression, drive it to perfection. Technique burns itself into the body, turns it into a machine: a cyborg. “Explicit Content” is simultaneously revolt and desire: resistance to rigid, artificial form that no virtuoso can escape, and the unbounded pleasure of diving into technique in order to leave behind the inadequacies of the body. The body relishes in squeezing itself into the pre-given form and triumphs when the dance engine rolls over it.
