enemy was the final project for my choreography M.A., and was performed at the Olivin Wellness Lounge Sauna in Berlin in June 2010. The performance followed a regular sauna ritual in which the audience participated, sweating in the sauna, taking showers, cooling off in the garden, etc.enemy

The performance sought to blur lines between the sauna experience as a personal and an artistic ritual, and required the audience to be physically present in a more extreme way than usual. I’d consider the many emails before and after performances concerning boundaries to be part of the piece as well. enemy
