Deep Soulful Sweats - Sarah Aiken & Rebecca Jensen
Sarah Aiken & Rebecca Jensen / Deep Soulful Sweats has a 10-year history of creating experimental choreography and participatory performance, crafting unique experiences for theatres, galleries, parties, community, film, music & site responsive contexts. Described as formally reckless, their work slips between codified forms and unbridled invention, considering collectivity, embodiment and our complicated relationships to national identity, environment and a warming climate. Their freeform maximalist style amasses images in a torrent of references, satirical, sincere, absurd and unapologetic. Notable works include; What Am I Supposed To Do? (WAISTD) (Take Over! Commission. Arts Centre Melbourne/Melbourne Fringe 2019. Winner Melbourne Festival Discovery Award, Greenroom Award nominated Best Production, Best Sound Design), Underworld (Melbourne Knowledge Week 2019, Supercell Festival Brisbane 2017, Darebin Arts 2017), OVERWORLD (Next Wave 2014, Dance Massive 2015). Deep Soulful Sweats presented Equinox for Castlemaine Festival 2019 and has featured in Homos Novus Festival (Latvia), ANTI Festival (Finland), MEL&NYC, MPavilion, Ian Potter Museum of Art, Tempo Festival (Auckland, NZ), Santarcangelo Festival (Italy), Brisbane Festival, PICA, Festival of Live Art, Next Wave Festival, Dark Faux Mo, Chunky Move and Testing Grounds and maintains a dedicated local following.
