Soliloquy in Sweat

Katrina E. Bastian

Soliloquy in Sweat is a high stakes performance that addresses the exploitation of the female body in the performing arts, especially in dance. This performance offers audience members coupons to various services- cooking, cleaning, and babysitting, should the performer, Katrina Elizabeth, fail to fulfill her promise to collect half a-liter of sweat within 40-minutes. By performing a series of high-intensity exercises, and movement phrases she attempts to produce and collect the prescribed amount of sweat. This is not a neatly choreographed dance solo, it’s messy, gritty, and desperate. The sound design harkens the fast-paced techno-beats of the Berlin-club scene. Thus further charging the atmosphere of the performance and supporting Katrina in her continuous, high-energy movement. The audience is invited to join her, and donate their own sweat to the bucket. With this high-stakes performance, we subvert capitalism, notions around disgust, and voyeurism in celebration of resilience, community, and empathy.
