ABOUT YOUNG BOY DANCING GROUP
Initiated in 2014, Young Boy Dancing Group began as a nameless performance collective, a versatile host embracing an ever-changing network of dancers across Europe. Over the last half-decade, YBDG has worked in video, photography, fashion, sculpture, and installation, but the group remains best known for its rawly intimate performances in which the materiality of bodies encounters the ethereality of light. As this precarious brigade continually swells and tightens, picking up new performers at each location, its core values persist as a fierce buttress against mainstream culture: somatic exploration, not sexualization; exposure, not exhibitionism; communal release, not bridled isolation; object-identification, not commodification; and DIY, not institutional polish.
Young Boy Dancing Group has made numerous international appearances, performing at venues such as the Schinkel Pavilion, Berlin (2019); Ceremonia Festival, Toluca, Mexico (2019); Athens Biennial (2018); Baltic Triennial, Tallinn, Estonia (2018); Creepy Teepee Festival, Kutná Hora, Czech Republic (2018); Norberg Festival, Sweden (2018); Roskilde Festival, Denmark (2017); Yvon Lambert Gallery, Berlin (2017); Lithuanian Pavilion, Venice Biennale (2015); and Silencio, Paris (2014).
