Room 02:53 is a Punking/Whacking dance performance that sings-along off-key and celebrates the beauty of failed communication. With the style’s unique take on storytelling and theatrics, five dancers commit to the vulnerability of communicating our emotions.
Amplified gestures and sharp movements give Room 2:53 its charm. Join a surreal, mouth-watering and visual experience, that encourages you to get caught under its spell and to bask in the chaos.
”Beauty from Ugly, Expression from Oppresion”
- Viktor Manoel (Original punker)
Punking/whacking is a social dance-style originally created by the queer people of colour of the 1970’s Los Angeles. The style combines expressions from silent films, cartoons and cinema within the context of the underground club scene. It is a dance language designed for reclaiming dignity from an oppressive society.
