Welcoming Female Fantasy
Created for the Young Assosiates of Sadler's Wells selection process (2019).
Performed again at Tate Modern as part of the Mass Hysteria's takeover of Tate Exchange (2020) - click here for more information.
This work explores female sexuality, desire and affection. I want to provide space for my dancers to explore their own fantasies – the agency is given back to the performers.
I celebrate female form, human empathy and ability to feel with and care for the environment.
The piece was inspired by my sisters: Hania and Aniela.
The garments used for this piece were made by Katharina Dubbick. Knitting, a technique for so long associated with women, reminds us to honor the crafts which we inherited from our mothers, which we will pass on to our daughters.
Co-created with the dancers: Hannah Aebi, Lydia Walker, Rebecca Piersanti
