The Meatlump

The Meatlump is an organism, a creature, an unidentifiable blob of flesh.             

The Meatlump is a state of mind, a character, a way of life. 

The Meatlump is an intention, a feeling, a universe within itself. 

The road to hell is paved with good intentions. For however much The Meatlump just wants to have a good time and create a nice environment for all, it always gets in its own way due to its gluttonous impulses. Be that as it may, The Meatlump still possesses a powerful allure of playful, exhilarating charisma, which tickles your imagination and keeps you on the edge of your seat.  Time after time you promise yourself that you’ll never invite it to any of your parties again. And  yet you always do.  

Inspiration for costumes

This pictures are from a photo project Maren and Julie created in collaboration with scenographer Kasper Hansen and photographer Nick Grey.

We want to create costumes of light colors, that can attract color during the performance and create a metallic and otherworldly look, with inspiration from this pictures. 

The gliding colors will create a confusing look, of which body part that belongs to who.

“De ælter sig selv og hinanden rundt som menneskeligt affald, der bliver skubbet  rundt af en bulldozer på en skrotplads. Måden de slasker dødt ned i gulvet på, får  publikum til at gispe. Det er sært fascinerende, de lader sig rulle ledeløst rundt for  

at blive samlet i en masse bestående af seks arme og ben, der hele tiden griber  ind i hinanden og griber fat, hvor de nu kan få fat, mens de dunker ned i gulvet.  Det virker komisk, men er også angstfremkaldende, for bare de ikke gør skade på  sig selv og hinanden. De virker helt uforfærdede og – synes det – viljeløse, da de  lader sig slynge ind i en samlet klump, hvor det ikke længere er muligt at skelne  dem og deres forskellige kropsdele fra hinanden."
