Giradança | RN | Brazil
The diversity of female bodies and their – not always – diverse representations are investigated in this meeting between Giradança and the choreographer Elisabete Finger. By questioning how women have been portrayed, from ancient mythology to contemporary life, three performers incorporate postures and positions found in personal archives, women’s magazines, advertisements, paintings, and historical sculptures.
The choreography incorporates narratives of activities, making and undoing archetypes of beauty, power, fertility, ecstasy, love, and war. If mythologies are narratives that transmit knowledge, the artists create their mythologies and attribute different qualities and possibilities – often fantastic – to their bodies.
