“I wanna be anarchy” – forty years ago, this statement by Johnny Rotten, singer of the Sex Pistols, initiated a new era. Punk rock was born. Punk was not just music, but a way of life. It rejected the status quo out of a nihilistic belief – fighting consumer society with its values and its aesthetic – and instead emphasizing the imperfect and the raw. What now remains of punk, this subcultural movement, whose visual language increasingly found its way into the fashion world and mainstream culture? In her piece, Paul Rosolen – advocate of peripheral topics in dance – sets out in search of traces of punk. She returns to its roots and extracts its special corporeality, its movement qualities. As in her previous productions, she creates unexpected connections and mixes the punk movement with simultaneous developments in postmodern dance.
