(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 biome comprises artistic director and choreographer Bettina Szabo and poet and videographer Émilie Allard poet, under dramaturgical mentorship of Angélique Willkie.
