The Argentine Tango is associated with a number of myths and stereotypes: undying passion, desire, red roses between the teeth...
We are all surrounded by such stereotypes, and I try to observe them here through a slightly different lens, putting everything into an alternative context - full of rituals and gestures - in which things seem to appear either black or white.
But Après Rasage is about more than that. It is, in essence, about men, manliness, and masculinity - aspects of which may seem laughable, disconcerting or, perhaps, reassuring. The question is, why do we perceive them this way? …and, have lost the capacity to read between the lines?
Après Rasage was shortlisted for "best choreography" in the annual Operaplus.cz dance awards.
