About

The human body is not hard and solid, but soft and fluid. A body that doesn’t move, dies. Yet we keep trying to define our bodies as definite and fixed, because that which we cannot define frightens us.

 

Fluidical is oddly satisfying and deeply frightening. In a slimy world a fluid creature searches for their place and wonders in which form their existence is allowed. Between disgust and attraction, can we see this creature for who they are?

Background

Maker Sophia van der Putten (they/them, die/diens) identifies as genderfluid. The experience of their gender and gender expression are changeable.

With this performance they research how the undefinable and changeable body can be frightening and intriguing at the same time.

Sophia invites the audience to be with an

ever-changing body.
