Five performers seek to transform their own body shame into a powerful, generative movement in which the boundaries between sensual, sexual and mundane slowly blur.

Melyn Chow, originally from Singapore and living in the Netherlands, works with mime, dance and performance. Her work explores female energy, sensuality and eroticism as a source of power.
