In the past
Requiem for vacuum cleaning

What happens to the vacuum cleaning when we approach it as dance? This is a performance that is a cleaning ritual. Vacuuming, dancing and choral singing are mixed in a visual, musical and dynamically captivating tribute to one of our most hated household chores. The performance is part of the project The Household Dance Protocol (HDP), which during the last two years has examined the relationship between dance and everyday movements.
