Upcoming performance artist Sofie Kramer searches for female autonomy and physical self-determination in a mind-blowing pole dancing performance based on "Iphigenia in Aulis", the famous Greek tragedy about the sacrifice of a young girl's body. In a sweaty duet between her body and a sky high pole, Kramer examines the thin line between violence and the erotic. Together with sound artist Mári Máko, she built her own interactive dancing pole, which she plays with her body as a music instrument. The hard, immobile piece of steel comes to life in this dark female fantasy.

"...a spectacle that is both powerful and intelligent. Text, movement and sound are brought together perfectly in a feminist swirl. [...] A true conversation starter." (Amsterdam Fringe Jury 2021)

"What a courage: coming up with such a challenging performative concept, writing such a beautiful text and on top of everything, executing it all so astonishingly well." (Theaterkrant)
