The performance takes place as a double bill with GLITCH CHOIR by Deva Schubert. The performances will be shown one after the other, with a break of 30 minutes. When you buy your ticket, you will receive a combined ticket with which you can attend both performances.

In bodyride a group of performers explore the radical nature of a body embedded in Ballroom culture through choreographic scores executed to soundscapes juxtaposing sacred music, ballroom beats and otherworldly sounds. Ballroom — as a space created by Black and Latinx trans people to celebrate their community and mock, and thus transgress, the norms surrounding hegemonic structures — is understood here as a reservoir of BIPOCQ ancestral knowledge. What can a body — driven by this ancestral resistance — do to stay visible and alive in a political and economic system perpetuating violence against marginalised communities? Catwalks, duckwalks, hands performance, spin and dips, posing, runway walks and other elements of Ballroom physicality are a myriad of techniques and states, a collective language aimed at training a dissident body and reclaiming a stolen political agency.
