"For in this dance the people do not move. Desire moves. Eros is a verb.” Anne Carson, Eros the bittersweet.

Shaking the libidinous looks at the intertwining of choreography, the erotic and context trough performative practices. The piece combines a sound and video installation and a movement score for three dancers. It reflects upon the conventional roles and dramaturgy of sex,  and pursues an abstraction of libido through text editing and choreographic methods: re-occupying a sensuous and erotic field from a feminine point of view.

Orfee Schuijt is a French choreographer and performer based in Oslo, Norway. She creates performances in a variety of different medias and contexts, such as dance, performative writing, drawing, video installation and live concerts. She currently works as a performer for Heine and Yukiko Avdal/Fieldworks and for the Norwegian singer Jenny Hval. She finished a Master in choreography at the New performative practices department in DOCH Stockholm in 2017.
