THE GRADUATION PERFORMANCE OF THE 4TH YEAR DANCE & CHOREOGRAPHY STUDENTS
Uranus is the 7th planet of our solar system. Its axis differs from other planets as it rotates almost entirely on its side. Uranus was also a gay rave in Stockholm. In astrology, it is the planet of sudden change, breakthroughs and upheaval. As the queer feminist astrologer Chani Nicholas puts it: Uranus is the goddess of I don’t give a f*ck.
While the piece is not about astrology, it takes what Uranus represents in astrology as a guideline for composition. Sudden changes during long transits, tilted axis, radical shifts: the astrological characteristics of the planet permeate the dances of Uranus. Not foreign to the Stockholm gay rave, it brings techno and the dance floor to the stage.
