CUÑA

(From the Guarani word for women)


Cuña is a research and creation process based on the phenomenon of internalized misogyny of women. This interdisciplinary performance combines contemporary dance, voice work and video mapping, in order to poetically visit the various life stages of women’s lives. This research features a cast of 5 dancers and an opera singer. Cuña's creative team  comprises artistic director and choreographer Bettina Szabo and dancer and videographer Sonya Stefan, and music composer Laurence Jobidon.

 

We are very thankful to the various partners that have supported this research: CALQ, CAC, Circuit-Est, MAI, Studio 303, Phi Center, Théâtre Diane Dufresne, EDCM and LA SERRE - Arts Vivants.
