Skin-Less by Molitrix Scenekunst plays in the English word skinless. Who is skinless is vulnerable, but the word can also mean that one has brutal and hard character traits. The word is connected to protecting skin/shell, as opposed to what is without, lacking, away, less or lesser.
By playing on this ambiguity Molitrix Scenekunst wishes to examine body/movement, light and sound in the intersection between the vulnerable, raw and unscrupulous. A short version of Skin-Less was performed during Kedja Dansolution in Dansescenen September 2 2008.

"We meet bodies who at times hit hard, brutally and energetically. Other times they suck in the attention in suggestive sequences in which the bodies become points in the room and the emphasis is on small, but important details. In this the theme chosen by Molitrix and Birkedal as a foundation is clear – in dynamic commute between attraction and refusal the piece is situated near what puts the body apart from its surroundings, the ego from the world."
