a peek at "more than naked" by Doris Uhlich

Excerpt from 2015 performance of “more than naked” by Doris Uhlich

Video Caption:

“Pourquoi se déshabille-t-on sur scène ? Que peut dire un corps nu ? Que peuvent dire vingt corps nus ?” Le titre more than naked annonce la couleur : chair. Vingt danseurs et danseuses nus agitent, secouent, remuent, tâtent et palpent leur chair.

La chorégraphe autrichienne Doris Uhlich, présente sur scène derrière les platines, questionne notre rapport au corps en s’émancipant du carcan des images, des symboles et des formats. Sans le sexualiser ni le réduire à un objet, more than naked présente le corps humain comme un matériau à la fois brut et réjouissant, offrant mille possibilités de recherche pour un tout autre imaginaire de la chair.

A translation

“Why does one undress on stage? What could a nude body say? What could twenty nude bodies say? The headline “more than naked” proclaims the color: flesh. Twenty nude dancers act, shake, move, feel and palpate their flesh.

The Austrian choreographer Doris Uhlich presents on stage behind turntables, questions our relationship to the body by freeing it from the constraint of images, symbols and formats. Without sexualizing or objectifying it, “more than naked” presents the human body as a material that is both raw and joyful, offering thousands of possibilities of searching for a whole other imagination of flesh.
