Bruixa

Solo Dance Performance (2018)

Together with Viviana Escalé, her companion of many years, choreographer Stephanie Thiersch embarks upon the search for headstrong forms of female self-presentation. “Bruixa” presents the personal portrait of a character that is in constant transformation. The body becomes a magical instrument which, with extravagant use of various materials, comes unstuck from visual clichés and attributions. Playing with the energy of (made-up) rituals, the performance brings modern aspects of the resistant female body to the fore.
