Mouthpiece s a contemporary dance and music piece performed by two dancers and three wind instruments. Mouthpiece takes a critical look at the western polarization of concepts like purity, dirt, sound, noise, light, dark, order and chaos. The work explores these themes by liberating the mouth and its fluids from the shame of social constructions. In Mouthpiece five mouths and their fluids are both the performers and means for the work.
