WoMAN & WOMAN 1.1

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WoMAN & WOMAN 1.1 are two solo works presented as a double program. Nominated for a Danish National Theatre Award (Reumert Award) in the category for best dance performance in 2017. Side by side they blend performance, physical theatre and dance into a wild and visual experience.

 

WoMAN is a transformative solo created and performed by Andreas Constantinou. This poetic work uses a rich visual language to invoke a lucid landscape of feminine archetypes. From the virgin to the crone, between animal and human, images unfold as the performer morphs inside an intimate setting of petals and grass. 

 

Set to an original music score and created in collaboration with the dutch composser Marlou Vriens, the music fills the theatre with ghoestly echoes that shift between divine choir like melodies and atmospheric soundscapes. WoMAN is a  visually powerful solo work that sees one male performer embark on a quest to find his own feminine self.

WOMAN 1.1: is an uncompromising protest performance and an artistic manifestation against the constraints of feminine stereotypes.

 

The performance highlights themes of endurance, resilience and feminine strength. High heals beat into the floor as a female performer runs at full speed under a set of microphones. Every footstep becomes a reclemation of space, sound and stance. Raw and confrontational, this solo challenges social concepts of the feminine.

 

The double program of WoMAN and WOMAN 1.1 specifically serve as a platform for displaying two different perspectives and relationships to the feminine.
