Sugar Free is based on the initial thoughts of artist Rene Donders while shaping his artwork Onderhuids that he made for the project Kunst en Bomen in Oisterwijk. De Hondsberg, a boarding school full with damaged life stories of children was Donder’s research location.
The biggest source of inspiration are people. Their strong, fragile, brutal, soft, devastating and caring traits. The drive to survive is our common ground. Within Onderhuids we feel the scars gained in a lifetime, always visible. Unable to polish them away, we learn how to deal with them.
‘ I don’t need sugar in my tea and I don’t want sugar in my coffee.. During my childhood I never brought my sugar coat with me outside. Instead, I fully glazed my body.’
Embodied extremities that occur in the physical and emotional body characterizes Prescimone’s work. Her main interest is the body in crisis, where she navigates through delicate memories, repressed sensations and absurd images. In order to shape a transformative journey for both the dancers and the witnesses, she uses methods of inner and outwards forces and discoveries lend by butoh and urban.
