OHGIRL!

What happens when the curtain falls, the spotlight goes out, the camera stops and the apartment door closes behind us. Two years after creating my first solo Ohboy! with performances in Antwerp, Berlin, Cologne, Geneva, The Hague, and Paris. I now want to create her feminine Ohgirl pendant! an intimate piece on the theme of burnout, on the questioning of the weight we carry on our shoulders. I imagine a small apartment where one can observe the dancer in her intimacy, her thoughts, inhabited by her dreams, her nightmares until the pressure of daily life nailed her to the ground, impossible to continue. Her apartment is both her refuge and her prison.
