Fast Food Foot

The pop-cultural reference to fast food does not invoke a reflection on our nutrition. Rather, it is a metaphor of the speed with which we consume images, and the pleasure with which we embrace what we are fed by the mass media. The starting point for Fast Food Foot is the casual TV show structure, and the consequences it entails. The characters portrayed by dancers will move in this world to the rhythm of familiar disco hits. The apparent presence of the camera, and the frequently changing content, will lend individual scenes a surrealist feel. The piece reduces motion to a sort of “choreography in progress”, accompanied by incessant disco rhythms. This convention, however, is more than an assemblage of quotations from mass culture. The “disco concept” implies a drive towards a specific atmosphere of “being in the state of disco” and an attempt to identify the “disco body”, along with its nonchalance and excitement. The use of disco hits transpose one further into the imaginary world, often leaving but a musical trace behind them. The piece will thus offer more than one story; highly extravagant, eccentric, and excited, the energy contained in disco will dictate the choreographic assumptions behind Fast Food Foot. Even with minimized motion, what matters in the end is to remain in the trance-like disco state…
