Vancouver International Dance Festival presents Benjamin Kamino

Event Details

Roundhouse Exhibition Hall

Nudity. Desire

Curator, choreographer, dancer, and performer, Benjamin Kamino is a generous and deep artist who floats in the creative space. Easily floating between platforms, his works are found both in theatres and galleries. Through the embodiment of philosophical theories and criticisms, dance becomes a place where ethical positions can be questioned.

Nudity. Desire is a dance/performance that undertakes as subject an origin of language through the appropriation of the theological concept of nudity. Building from the work of Giorgio Agamben, Kamino examines the moment of the fall in Genesis where the first nude would be the time when humanity would first acquire a capacity for knowledge, language, and desire. This creation of extreme sensitivity presents a body hanging grace and leads us into the deep roots of desire and vanity.
