The dance piece Öljekt takes a deep look into the event of how to oil (to blush, to alienate, to…?).

The performance observes, how does an emotional, affective body receive crude oil, bitumen, gasoline; filtrate them into this body for them to become an irredeemable part of oneself. The dancers become oiljects – hybrids of human and oil. Aren´t people already there? Oil is power, money, fast cars, concrete under the feet, lip balm on a cold winter´s day. The work flirts with human´s relationship with oil and observe the emerging ways of this new symbiotic being.

Öljekt calls forward oil, the partner from underground, invites it to share the stage taking the lead on humans, dance as the other half of a synergetic relation. The performance is an oil poesy, an ode to oil, the companion of billions of years of age, that is nearly finished.
