Badman by T.I.T.S is inviting us into a strange world in which they play with masculinity and its power reclaimed and twisted by a single female performer.
It’s that pop and oomph I desire
to wear your gestures as my garment
to rip off your faces
to taste your manners
to drink your spirit
to pet your ego
I’ll rise from your ashes
T.I.T.S. is a performance group founded by former students of the Norwegian Theatre Academy and led by Nela H. Kornetová. They last visited Black Box teater during fall season 2017 with Mine, a performance about the human need to possess. The group explores the possibilities of hybrid theater forms, blending choreography, play, sound, visual imagery, and body physicality. Based in Norway, artistic leader Kornetová initiates each project with her international team of collaborators, with themes that audiences from all walks of life can relate to instinctively.
Recent projects include Cult of Busy (2018) – a satirical work about a fictional religious community worshipping busy-ness, and the performance installation un:tit:led (2018), which focused on the themes of uncertainty and unpredictability. Their latest work was titled Tumor: Carcinogenic Romance and dealt with the search for love and peace with a deadly disease, mixing performance, sound, and visual art.
