VAMP (2015)

Danses Buissionnières 2015 Class (Tangente - Monument National - Montreal)

Choreography : Dominique Sophie / Music : Tom Jarvis


Judith seduces and Judith kills. Pushed by divine love, Judith puts into motion her plan to decapitate Holofernes. The original story leave the heroine’s virtue intact, whereas Klimt chose to depict this violent act as a carnal experience in which Judith is exposed, yet impenetrable. Klimt’s femme fatal blurs the boundaries between states of religious devotion, physical rapture and trance. Vamp explores this depiction of women by embodying and staging Judith’s emotional and physical state accompanied by Tom Jarvis’ live music.

Created while in studio residency at the M.A.I.
