How do culture and media influence our self-image, and can we deal with change? How far can bodily manipulation go, and what is beauty? We see four female performers using their bodies as instruments. But just like in Ahlbom's other work, you are witnessing an exciting game between surrealism and transformation.
SYZYGY is a return to the intimacy of the smaller performances, after years of assembling grand magical performances such as Horror and Le Bal. With a more intimate performance, Jakop can get close to the skin in search of the essence of the body in all its purity. A tender performance about strength and vulnerability, appearance and being, illusion and disillusionment. In keeping with the best Ahlbom traditions.
