WoMAN & WOMAN
Year Premiered: 2016
WoMAN & WOMAN are two solo works presented as a double program. Side by side these two performances blend physical theatre and dance into a wild and visual experience.
WoMAN is a sublimely ritualistic and visually striking solo that invokes a lucid landscape of feminine architypes. From the virgin to the crone, between animal and human, images unfold as a queer male performer embarks onto a transformative journey to find his feminine self.
In WOMAN High heels beat into the floor as a female performer runs at endurance speeds under a set of micrphones. Every foot step becomes a reclamation of space, of sound and of stance . Raw and confrontational, this solo challenges social concepts of the feminine.
Back to back these two solos’ serve as a platform for displaying two different perspectives and relationships with femininity.
WoMAN & WOMAN was nominated for a Reumert Award in the category of best dance performance 2017.
