ZODIAK - CENTER FOR NEW DANCE: MICHAELA THE QUEEN OF FUCKING EVERYTHING, PAULA TUOVINEN, KUUMAT PUTKET - BLONDES
5.-18.12.2018, Zodiak Stage, Cable Factory
Blondes is a version of Paula Tuovinen's 2000 solo piece Blonde reworked for Michaela – The Queen of Fucking Everything and Go Go Dance Group Hot Tubes.
It is a recycled version of the original choreography that assumes its own shapes, and flows without any restrictions. It focuses on Michaela – The Queen of Fucking Everything and Joonas Lampi of Hot Tubes, corresponding to the dynamic duo of Paula Tuovinen and set designer Kimmo Takala in the original. An amoeba-like constellation of members of Hot Tubes also appears in every performance.
Paula Tuovinen's original performance explored the notions attached to the white female: woman as nature, woman as a child or a child-like creature, the white woman as a person of colour and the white woman as a joke. In the new version Michaela and the Hot Tubes blow up the notions and expressions of blondeness and give the centre stage to the inner bimbo in us all.
The performance is inspired by everything silly and weird. The bimbos can be children of nature, innocent, mean, unpredictable, irrational; they can come in high heels with high voices. They can be desired and despised, simultaneously goddesses and idiots – or not.
