Two performers crawl on all fours and bare their teeth. The white performer is wearing a beige tulle blouse, the black performer the same in black. A third person stands in the background holding her arms up and to the side.

CAMOUFLAGE, a new work by Cameroonian-Finnish choreographer Sonya Lindfors examines the act of looking and the politics of the gaze. The stage has the potentiality to reveal and obscure, make things invisible or hypervisible. But how do we recognize what we see? What happens in that moment of recognition when you categorize something as »contemporary«, as »art« or as »Black«? In the core of Sonya Lindfors’ work is the practice of shaking and challenging existing power structures and empowering communities. With CAMOUFLAGE, she follows up on her trilogy about being Black, the last part of which, COSMIC LATTE, was a huge success at Kampnagel as part of the NORDWINDFestival in December 2019.
