BICHO RARO investigates the world of bodybuilding – ist lifestyle, exercise routines and aesthetics – to uncover the tension between the body cult nowadays and a queer perspective on the body. The solid, static, fixed body is opposed by a flexible, fluid human anatomy and ist perception, developing against the rules as a new kind of bodily science fiction.
Inspired by body-cult worlds, such as comics, posthumanism or cyberpunk, BICHO RARO tells of transformation and a human being as a system ready for mutation.
After the Premiere of the show during Tanztage Berlin 2023 in Sophiensaele, BICHO RARO comes back as a whole installation and performance to be presented at the Heizhaus in Uferstudios.
Supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
