For her new solo performance “The Pressing”, premiering 29 July at this year’s edition of Radialsystem’s SENSE series, Dani Brown re-appropriates the word ‘CUNT’ from its realm of vulgarity. In a world of speculation, belief and queer narrative, she gives herself, her body, soul, intellect, her dance and choreographic practice over to what she terms a ‘CUNT’ entity. Brown starts with the physical qualities of the female sexual organ, the neural connections between brain, clitoris and carnal knowledge, to seek out the expressive possibilities of this anatomically and socially complex organ – what would a vulva-oriented/cunt-centric performance look, feel and sound like?

She is accompanied by the immersive music of artist and DJ Justin F. Kennedy and their queer ode to ‘CUNT’ with laid tracks, historic samples and angelic vocals. Belgian designer Jan Fack’s stage setting features huge floral arrangements and live moths curated by Project Cultivation, and is inspired by the sensually luscious and equally complex Vanitas paintings of the 16th and 17th centuries.

After living in Hamburg and producing work in co-production with Kampnagel for five years, she made Berlin her home in 2012 where she works as a choreographer, performer, researcher and teacher. Her works and collaborations have been presented internationally in Europe, Africa and Asia.
