Two women caught up in a loop of striving to be perfect verses being themselves. They are seductive, funny and provoking with a hint of sarcasm. As a team they confront the outside observer, wanting to connect and to be understood. But can they keep up with the image they have created for themselves? Juxtapose is a performance that combines text and movement to give a comment on our society, where the woman has to manoeuvre between being intensely feminine but also assertive and masculine at the same time. Balancing the duality of our inner emotions and how we portray ourselves according to outside expectations. Juxtapose is a comment on our need to mirror ourselves to others and to be understood and accepted, just the way we are.

“As a choreographer Cecilia Moisio is inimitable and in her own class… Juxtapose is simply a high quality performance and it’s performers strikingly talented.”

 Keskisuomalainen (FI)**** – Maija-Liisa Westman

“The duo makes sharp switches from sugary performance to harsh falling.”

“… Moisio is surely someone to keep an eye on: she mixes hard performance with physical feat and sarcastic self-deprecation.”

 De Volkskrant (NL)**** – Annette Embrechts

Cecilia Moisio and Erin Harty give new life to girl-power. The two performers are perfect for each other qua presence, physicality, personality and expressiveness.”

 8Weekly (NL)**** – André Arends

“The sarcasm that Moisio approaches her themes with is strongly felt in the performance. The irony of the situations, temptation against the abomination and the dynamics that the performers switch from one extreme to another transmit this intense and strong message.”

Cultuurbewust (NL)**** – Claire Philips
