SWAN FATE is a queer feminist appropriation of the ballet classic Swan Lake. Ursina Tossi and her company break with traditional concepts of love and fate and formulate their very own, diverse and contemporary declaration of love for dance. In SWAN FATE, the dancers play with longings, virtuosity, physicality and vulnerability, searching in the choreography and in their bodies for the traces that Swan Lake leaves behind. They also engage with the dance heritage, as well as the violent and colonial narratives and practices of ballet. To the music of the band CocoRosie, newly composed especially for the piece, not only different urban dance styles are mixed with contemporary dance. The dancers glide from one role to another. The shapeshifting between swans and humans, the change between marginalized and mainstream perspectives opens up new fantasies and imagines loving encounters between animals, humans and other beings.
