How to surrender oneself to be moved by someone else?
How to be moved by a thing rather by your own will?
In Fluids W A U H A U S creates a state of slipperiness on stage in which the human subject cannot fully control its own body. Fluids invites the audience to encounter empathy, intimacy, and failure in these times when individualism, perfectionism, and mistrust prevail in society.
One part strange spectacle on ice, one part slimy orgy. In Fluids the bodies are vulnerable, limited, and dissolve into each other.
W A U H A U S is a Helsinki-based arts collective, active in today’s performance field. The works of W A U H A U S take on many different forms, but are often centered around materiality, the body of the audience member, empathy, and strong audiovisual concepts.
