The Time it Takes to Melt (my heart)
back to home
Inspired by Monique Wittig's "Le Corps Lesbien" and Octavia Butler's novel "Parable of the Sower", showdown imagines episodically the meeting and co-existence of two individuals. In a strange and at the same time provisional-hopeful environment, the two dancers Nanna Stigsdatter Mathiassen and Judith Förster find opportunities to meet.

With reference to the worlds of Neo-Western and Survivalism, in showdown the line between duet and duel, collaboration and sabotage becomes blurred.
