Performance

In Her Eyes (2016)

Solo pieces by Irfana Majumdar and Celia Dufournet

Inspired by Grimm’s Snow White and Jack Weatherford’s The Secret History of the Mongols Queens, the two solo pieces express the positions and representations of women and power. Through text, movement, puppetry, and song, they invite the spectator to come along on a journey of images and sensations. This is a form of storytelling which focuses on a holistic awareness of the body during the performance rather than on a single text-based narration to find its train of thought. Among other techniques, the two performers have trained in Corporeal Mime, and used it as a starting point for creating the compositions. This form of work is particularly well adapted to address social issues by creating an intimate and lively connection with the audience.
