Event Description

World Premiere
By Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama

No More Beautiful Dances wrestles with the ideas of being an immigrant and the exploration, introspection and re-framing of a woman after becoming a mother. This dance theater piece uses drawing, spoken word and video projections to tell a personal vision of femininity, and what it means to be a woman today.
It is a search to define identity in a modern context, and discern the way in which to shape one's own agency through a post-colonialist lens. What does it mean to be human? The body becomes the homeland, and movement is a mother tongue. The show explores two ideas: the body as a container and the body as a tool, using two live-streaming cameras, two projectors and two laptops. Technology in this piece is a magnifying glass, showing something normally hidden from normal view. The cameras become a portal to another dimension for the audience and performer.
