An investigation into the role of women and the boundaries surrounding body cult nowadays. What does the perfect woman want?
Dancer-choreographer Florentina Holzinger is known as a very physical and particularly explosive performer. Inspiration for her often brutal productions is drawn from disciplines such as kickboxing, circus, striptease or yoga. This time she works with neoclassical ballet and with a fully female cast. George Balanchine, one of the greatest choreographers of the twentieth century, is her inspiration for Apollon Musagète.
A 'post-baroque' ballet piece on the reinvention of the tradition. Questions about alienation and individual identity in relation to beauty and perfection give the performance a contemporary interpretation.
Warning: this performance contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing.
☞ Performance in the framework of The future is feminist, a programme focussing on feminism today.
