Bobbi Jene’s work explores the intersection of physicality, virtuosity, and desire. With a focus on extremes: delicacy and explosiveness, simple and detailed, personal and political, pain and pleasure. She choreographs situations where we are able to see people behave, rather than perform. Asking artists to execute a series of tasks so difficult that it requires them to move beyond the confines of “performing”. She believes this unfiltered exposure reveals a truth in the body – the duality of masculine and feminine, where dominate and passive are married, and pain and pleasure have equal value.
