IT'S OH SO QUIET

CHOREOGRAPHED BY ALIX KUIJPERS

It's Oh So Quiet is Alix Kuijpers' choreographic debut and premiered as apart of the 6 works featured in Rip Drag and Ruminate 2020. The work is a response to the atrocities committed against the queer people of Chechnya, following the story of a young gay couple who are abducted and taken to a concentration camp. The piece has the audience onstage surrounding the events making you confront the horrors head on. The piece's queer themes are a pillar in Alix's work and It's Oh So Quiet is the first of many projects that feature queer characters and themes as a pivotal focus. 

“It’s Oh So Quiet by Alix Kuijpers was easily the most difficult piece to watch, as powerful as it was." - The AU Review
