Laureate of the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2017, the live artist Dana Michel returns with a new work, CUTLASS SPRING. In this piece, she explores the socio-cultural layers that make her who she is and the buried facets of her personality. Through each of her pieces, Dana Michel scans her body. This time, she dives into the heart of her sexual self to unearth parts of her that she denied in the past. Guided by raw energy and an unique physicality, she attempts to extract herself from social conditioning and to face all of its contradictions. Simmering with humour, CUTLASS SPRING positions itself as an ethnography of sexuality and an archaeology of desire.
A trained athlete, canadian live artist Dana Michel has been thrust into the international spotlight. Named by the New York Times as one of the notable female choreographers to watch in 2014, she won the ImPulsTanz prize for her piece Yellow Towel in Vienna. In 2017, she received the Silver Lion in dance at the Venice Biennale. She was nominated at the ANTI International Festival Prize For Live Art (Kuopio, Finland) in 2019.
