JUCK <3 LILITH
She said that there is power in vibrations, in fragility. That there is power in stories that are told over and over again.
(this is where you meet the gaze of six night hags)
Their castles shall be overgrown with vibrating ornaments, their fortresses with desire and wet undies.
In a pool of holy water within a velvet world, JUCK has fallen in love with the feminist archetype Lilith. The performers move between vibrating hysteria and gentle caretaking, between sacred beauty and demonic fury. Using their gaze they channel the spirit of Lilith. It is with great urgency that JUCK invite you to their universe, a call to reconstruct ideas that have been transmitted across generations, cultures and bodies for way too long. This is a preparation, a ceremony, a dance piece and a party.
