MC 14/22 (Ceci est mon corps)
MC 14/22 is a meeting of the spiritual and the carnal, drawing on St Mark’s version of The Last Supper in the Bible: ‘Take, eat: this is my body’.
Created for twelve male dancers, Preljocaj’s ‘Apostles of Movement’, and with soundscapes by Tedd Zahmal, this powerfully sensual and passionate work is a hymn to the male body, stripped down to its deepest reality, juxtaposing the glorification of strength and the condemnation of force.

‘On an intellectual level, the dancers represent the 12 apostles. On a purely visual level, this is a celebration and exploration of the male form, performed with authority and an astonishing level of control.’
