A hair appointment like no other

Welcome to Sindri Runudde’s choregraphic hair salon – where your inner demons can take a seat, be shared and celebrated!

 

A social space 

I Cosmetic Demons: A Choreographic Salon is a hair salon where gossip, emotions and personal processes are given free reign. In front of the hairdressing chairs – where mirrors are normally found – are dancers. Three hairdressers, three customers and three dancers play out a choreographic idea in the form of a fictitious hair salon. 

Get a glimpse into a social space where the intimacy between hairdresser and customer is at the very heart of the relationship and where imagination and dreams are woven together with concrete encounters. 

Dark humour 

The concept behind Cosmetic Demons is inspired by a meditative and therapeutic exercise called ‘feeding your demons’. Choreographer Sindri Runudde takes a playful approach and uses joy, fiction and fashion as tools, paired with darker and more complex experiences at the hair salon. And as always, with a skewed perspective on the situation. 

This includes exploring the senses of the human body and this time, it is the 666th sense that is under scrutiny: the bloody sense of humour!
