Double Bill

The Resilience of the Body & Portray Teaterøen


Double Bill consists of two performances:
The Resilience of the Body aims to find continuity and perseverance in the world we live in today, using repetition within the action of running and spoken text to express the inner struggles. This performance questions the practicalities of urban daily life, social pressures, political context and existential matters. Shoukry wanted to re-find dance. Dance however could not be found, and for the first time in her work, text found its way into the performance.
Portray unravels the layers of a body through its reservoir, tapping into timeless states of being through an inner grove. About inner movement, transformation and the action of shaking.
