Superposition

Superposition is a new show celebrating female sensuality. In an age where women’s eroticism is commodified and cheapened, ‘Superposition’ combines art, science and philosophy to construct an alternative narrative from a feminist perspective. Chanje Kunda uses spoken word, live art and dance fusion to present her findings in a paradoxical but hugely entertaining one woman show.

This piece’s is in development and was showcased at Word of Warning’s event ‘Emergency’ on 1st October 2016 at Z-Arts, was the Guardian newspaper’s pick of the week as part of the  ‘Divergency’ Festival on 6th October 2016.

Chanje has been combining the movement vocabulary of erotic dance, with the expressionism of contemporary dance and had to do quite a bit of training to get there:

 

Benji Reid worked with Chanje on the initial creative development, alongside Malika Booker.  Early sharings of SUPERPOSITION as a ‘work in progress’ took place in Johannesburg and Manchester in 2016. Moving forward into production, Peader Kirk will be directing the show. A sharing will be shown in Manchester on 11-12 May 2017 as part of Works Ahead festival. A preview will be shown as part of the Lowry’s industry showcase in September, date tbc. SUPERPOSITION will premiere 26/27th October 2017 in Lowry Studio 1 and available for touring November 2017 through to Spring 2018

Superposition has been developed with support from Divergency, Contact, hÅb, STUN and The Lowry and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The show trailer for this work in development is below
