M3 is a contemporary dance installation combining live performance and video. Performed in changing gallery venues, the work suggests and challenges different kinds of bodily materialities.
M3 is fleshy and delicate while also being sensual and grotesque, diving into human bodies with two dancers who embody different aesthetics of physical presence. The installation inhabits familiar and strange surroundings, exploring realms of trance, frenzy and oblivion.
