Description "Dance piece Ö L J E K T takes a deep look into the event of how to oil (to blush, to alienate, to…?) We observe, how does an emotional, affective body receive crude oil, bitumen, gasoline; filtrate them into this body for them to become an irredeemable part of oneself. We become oiljects – hybrids of human and oil. Aren´t we already there? Oil is power, money, fast cars, concrete under the feet, lip balm on a cold winter´s day. We flirt with human´s relationship with oil and observe the emerging ways of this new symbiotic being.

Ö L J E K T calls forward oil, our partner from underground, invites it to share the stage taking the lead on humans, dance as the other half of a synergetic relation. The performance is an oil poesy, an ode to oil, our companion of billions of years of age, that is nearly finished.
