Kat Válastur

Kat Válastur’s production is a choreographic essay on crude oil dependence by Western societies. The Berlin choreographer places three dancers into an adventurous game called OILinity, letting them wander through a landscape animated by petroleum, and situated in a sculptural obstacle course. Its core is the “spinning melancholy”, a cylindrical object that has nothing more in mind than preserving its own system.

With forceful movements, meticulous choreography, and black humour, OILinity confronts the audience with a dance work that reveals the hidden human traits as well as those of petroleum, finding a vocabulary of movement in which forces and speeds culminate in the crude beauty of dripping oil.
