(From the Guarani word for women)
Cuña, is a research and creation process based on the phenomenon of internalized misogyny of women. With the purpose of becoming a show, this interdisciplinary exploration combines contemporary dance, voice work and video mapping, in order to poetically visit the various life stages of a women’s lives. In this research we count with a cast of 5 dancers and an opera singer. A creative biome composed by Bettina Szabo as artistic director and choreographer and Emilie Allard poet and videographer, under dramaturgical mentorship of Algelique Willikie.
We are very thankful to the various partners that have supported us on advancing this research: CALQ, CAC, Circuit-Est, MAI, Studio 303, Phi Center, Théâtre Diane Dufresne, EDCM and La serre Arts Vivants.
