About MassHysteria

our Background

***

We are a multicultural collective formed of twelve female dance artists located around the world. We have different backgrounds and experiences such as visual arts, science, music, literature and philosophy, which we share within the collective. We believe in each of our individual’s uniqueness being the basis of our shared collectivity. As MassHysteria we share the vision for a utopian space, where body, gender and race are not defining the way we perceive our environment.

our Practice

***

 The fundamental elements of our connection are shared curiosities and questions, rather than the answers we try to decipher. We strongly believe that the honesty we practice as individuals, as well as towards each other influences our works. 


We are passionate about creating work that makes use of digital, as well as physical spaces. We have been developing a practice where we build a malleable environment using our moving bodies, voices and live DJ-ing as media to create a space where we react to the infinite, surrounding possibilities. Within our practice we move through a journey of escaping our individual patterns.

our Vision

***

We strongly believe in the significance of voicing and sharing young women’s artistic practice in contemporary western society, striving for an equality of the sexes in the arts and beyond. We aim to create a platform where people connect and exchange their voices. Therefore, we mainly draw from our experience of an incredibly deep female friendship, the mutual support, as well as the confidence and sense of ownership that we want to share with the world. 


We recognise true collectivity being all about inclusiveness rather than exclusiveness; leaving behind pre-established concepts of borders and divisions.
