Performance synopsis

The performance uses tools of experimental dance and theatre, taking the closing of the libretto for Igor Stravinsky’s ‘The Rite of Spring’ as its starting point. Based on testimonies of contemporary women gathered by the artists, as well as the formula of the fairy tale and the witch, the production tells of strategies for abusing the female body, deconstructing and transforming the power/violence narratives and mechanisms present in culture today.
