Too tall, too small, too fat, too thin, too light, too dark, too poor, too rich, too square, too hip, too turned in, too turned out, too twisted or too wound up – do you also feel every now and then at the wrong place, in the wrong time, in the wrong body or even all at once? in-place / dis-place / replace, this dance performance by Ruben Reniers, deals with this phenomenon, with a focus on physical enrollment and its changeability.

How far can, will or should one bend to adapt to one's environment? Who determines what is appropriate and inappropriate? And does the individual authenticity perhaps fall by the wayside with all such adjustments?

Evelyn Saylor (music) | Ruben Reniers / rubarb dance & art (choreography | dance) | 20 mins

In today‘s over-commodified world, we are given license to focus on ourselves exclusively, without obligation to the greater collective. We are offered the platforms to do so - ones which originated from our desire for connection, but morphed into means of self-marketing. Even the text you are reading is a disguised advertisement. What happens when you have inadvertently turned your personhood into a product? When your attempt at self-realization has made you your own shareholder, and invested you into a social credit system? How does the ability to curate one‘s own narrative effect individual memory? In the age of the emancipated individual, where do collective memory and responsibility live? When you are your own ruler, are you actually free?
