What can water teach us about transformation, change and letting go of past structures that no longer serve us?
In the form of a physical and visual dance performance, created in close collaboration between Lois Alexander and scenographer Nina Kay, Neptune highlights the states of water - solid, liquid, gas, which are always in transition.
Neptune further washes away illusions that can evade the self and obstruct the natural process. This performance reflects on the reality of having an existence that is racialized, politicized, and sexualized. Neptune is an attempt to liberate oneself through returning to earth’s natural resources.

With her choreographies, Lois is inspired by natural processes and events.
