Inspired by poet Anne Boyer, the solo moves through a landscape of power dynamics and layers of hierarchy while exploring gender as a social category. The choreographic structure is built up of layers of accumulated materials, micro-details, glitches and associations that challenge the qualities of the ambiguous female body and its stereotypes.

 

Using a minimal and repetitive vocabulary, nuances of spirals, weight and speed become the main components of a sensual and powerful performance.
