Borrowing from the figure of the hooligan, the cowboy and the dancer, this work examines the potency and slipperiness of these archetypes of tomfoolery, aggression and independence, by shapeshifting through a series of tight-to-soft embodiments. A tragi-comic dance of malleability, which visits some historical and contemporary tropes of masculinities – revealing the constructed, humorous and absurd nature of their performativity.
Alistair N. Watts is a Berlin based dancer and choreographer, whose work traces various art practices as an engagement with materiality, sensuality, instability, disorientation and communion.
