mixed feelings - Adriano Wilfert Jensen

mon 03/05/2021 > sun 16/05/2021

It was an ordinary grey afternoon, the fog appeared to clear in the park, when the street foxes came out in numbers, “it’s so romantic, I’m gonna come” they howled. The magic hour approached with it’s bait. Something behind their backs gave it away. There was no way but forward. Their backs hollowing, hidden in plain sight, pleasantly leaking souls mixing up. They steadied their pace straight ahead. Now running. The deeper the leak, the faster the pace. Settling in a calm flux, inside out and so on.

mixed feelings is a dance performance by Adriano Wilfert Jensen, developed with and danced by Chloe Chignell, Bryana Fritz, Paolo Gile, Simon Asencio, Amanda Barrio Charmelo, Alexandra Tveit and Stefan Govaart, in a setting developed with Andrea Zavala Folache, to original music by Dean Blunt. It is part of a long term research project into the politics of feeling(s), analysis. As a dance that unfolds in various formats and collaborations, analysis investigates relations between subjects and feelings. It starts from the supposition that feelings are opaque, mediated and that they are something you do (consciously or not) rather than have. In this performance, Adriano Wilfert Jensen focuses on dismantling the individualistic frame of desire in dancing and watching. mixed feelings explores the mess and ambivalence of whatever stands under, through and above ‘us’ individuals.
