Animal Magnetism 1

In Animal Magnetism the choreographer Henriette Pedersen tackles various displays of hysteria from the 19th Century to today. When Pedersen choreographs and stages hysteria, it is to demonstrate the obscene, burlesque, grotesque and vulgar details that especially female dancers and their choreographers don’t normally allow on stage, unless they want to be considered hysterical.
