[I WANT] WHAT YOU WANT. WHEN [I’VE] GOT WHAT [I WANT], [I WANT] SOMETHING ELSE. [I AM] TRAPPED IN A HAMSTER WHEEL THAT IS SPINNING CONTINIOUSLY; HERE [MY] LUST IS MATERIALISTIC, EXAGGERATED AND NEVER-ENDING.


[I am] searching obsessively for excessive emotions by initiating sexual encounters with garments. Yet orgasm can’t be reached because desire is impossible. Driven by an unfulfilling longing [I want] what everybody else wants. tonight is the night baby and forever but no recycling is a sarcastic approach to the phenomena of consumerism and the failing attempt to experience what is real – my orgasm, laughter, hope, satisfaction.


Moa Johansson makes performance informed by visually strong and multi-textured aesthetics. Using a body-based practice, she creates live moving images and experiments with modes that are compelling and unpleasant, humorous and monotonous, intelligent and absurd. Underlying all of Moa’s work is a sense of both choreography and playful impulsiveness.
