Figured + Flush

FEBRUARY 20 | 19.00 PM | Premiere

In Figured and Flush, Sheena McGrandles explores radical temporality. With great attention to detail, Figured exposes the absurdity and artificiality of everyday gestures. Flush, following Gertrude Stein, breaks down linear and traditional forms of storytelling-perhaps even evoking a new lesbian temporality and aesthetic.

          Dystopian suburbs of teenage dreams and nightmares. A group of girls meet. They dream of the future and share both individual and collective memories, oscillating between boredom and panic in the highly-planned architecture of their environment. Trapped amongst the remains of an urban nightmare built on earnest but misguided community housing projects, they wonder: Are there still possibilities waiting at The End of the Road? Cécile Bally’s social critique uses Sitcom-strategies to examine visions of radical change at the peripheries of urban life and transports the audience into an imaginary space at the borders of the city.

          Cécile Bally is a Berlin-based choreographer and performer who graduated in dance and choreography at HZT Berlin, UDK. She previously studied Economics at the Ecole Normale Supérieure and the Pantheon Sorbonne University in France. Her artistic work creates connections between these backgrounds and interrogates, with humour, the place of rationality and magical realism in performance. Cécile Bally roots her work in the science-fiction genre with an eye on social criticism, and therefore studies entitites (vampires, supermarkets), triggering dreams, and nightmares both utopian and dystopian.
