ONE WOMAN AND A MIC
MAN POWER MIX is a dance art piece that puts sensational matter at the fore. Experimenting with the poetics of erotics through their rupturing man performance, STEVE & SAM engage with soft and hard materials, labor- intensive tasks and methods of vibrant transmission. They touch and transform the matter around them taking you through a series of sensuous and embodied events.
GET YOURSELVES HARD!
"Refreshing play on maleness, femininity and other unshakeable ideas
Sheena McGrandles & Zinzi Buchanan step into the shoes of Sam & Steve, an alpha-male performance duo. Their androgynous appearance sets up a pleasant ripple through the audience’s customary ways of looking and thinking. In their home-made free space, they take on one another and their environment – by turns sober and practical or buzzing with erotic tension or machismo. Light and dark, hard and soft, male and female; every time you think you have pinned down what you are seeing, the performers give an expert twist that again skews the image. A pleasantly confusing experience for the mind and the senses." (Something Raw Festival, Frascati Theatre Amsterdam, 2016)
