Is the contemporary performance artist underprivileged?
The Slovenian Maja Delak’s Expensive darlings is a reflection on the state of contemporary dance and women in our society, though not through the perspective of self-pity or the unmediated tackling of the problems or speaking in general. Critics have characterised the work as being one of the most engaged in recent years.
Seven performers on a small stage explain their situations through intimate stories, their relationships with each other, as well as through movement, contemporary dance. They play stereotypical roles—everything from angels to matadors—making fun of them and doing what they like to do most—dance.
