Freak, Passion, Onion Performing in my own shows, or others’. I've always wanted to be Ingrid Bergman.
2 FOR A FIVER (2018 > )
2 FOR A FIVER is an on going collaboration between performance artists Alice Esmé & Luis Amália.
Our work pays tribute to the place and space in which it
plays out. Site-Specific Movement sequence.
Layer over layer, like a palimpsest.
We queer the hyper-normal, the architecture. We clash costume, music, place, object and movement against one another to create bizarre, grotesque situations. #JustForTheLaughs #ThenPolkaTheSalsa
Direction Luis Amália

Bizarre situations that start to become ordinary and mundane. Two freaks corrupting gymnastics’ routines and the movements of synchronised swimming and perverting gender roles attached to them.
Creating a new series of hyper-normal, daily life spatial relationships. Adding new layers to the architecture (like Enric Miralles might have done). Dissecting, manipulating and deconstructing. Architecture is also made of the actions that take place in the space. We turn our bodies into architectural axonometrics.
Just for the laughs.
