SHORT + SWEET DANCE
Carmen: A Tango For One
Show 2 | 14 – 15 September
“L’amour est un oiseau rebelle…” And so is Carmen. Deemed impossible, Carmen: A Tango For One, explores a symbolically patriarchal form of movement without a male dominating the bodily conversation. Instead; One Woman. One Dance. One Liberation?
