An American dancer who arrived in Basel as a ballet performer, Jeremy Nedd has devoted the start of his career as a choreographer to knocking down the walls within contemporary dance, by considering the creative work of today in a peripheral manner. In Re(mains), he explores the performativity of the hyper-testosteroned postures present in hip hop imagery, stripped of sounds or lyrics. In a space free from gender stereotypes, he decontextualizes the bodily vocabulary usually utilised for conveying identity-based, intimate or militant forms of speech. His piece is a subjective and poetic reappropriation of this type of masculinity, sitting between power, gentleness and vulnerability, where ego trips are replaced with dereliction.
