Shredder by Ofelia Jarl Ortega together with composer Patrik Patsy Lassbo and dancer Alexandra Tveit, is a staged exploration of voluntary objectification as a subversive weapon in a hypersexualised world. Shredder is a performance where power and desire produces a potent, alluring and at the same time unpleasant atmosphere. Suggestive glances and erotic undertones creates a space for three bodies, surrounded by pulsating light and music, to orient themselves in the concept of post porn. Through her interest for the conditions for productions of desire and eroticism in contemporary society, Ofelia Jarl Ortega invites to a broadened understanding of pleasure.
