IN DIESER FRAU – Giulia Menti

The Karnaf Granovsky Hall, Friday November 30, 12:00am

Direction and Choreography Giulia Menti, Italy
Dancer: Francesca Bedin
Soundtrack: Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto, Soap & Skin
Costume and Light designer: Giulia Menti

First study of “IN DIESER FRAU,” a meeting between choreographer and dancer in the discovery of the intimate evolution of the being woman. To the discovery of female that is not clear, obvious, thrown in the face as an arms…but of a female discreet, deep, intimate. A discovery that reveals a soul and not only a gender identity.

“IN DIESER FRAU” is 10 minutes’ distance from the dynamics of the worlds,10 minutes distance from the confirmation of “OURSELVES,” at times an uncomfortable but extremely deep and radical investigation of a not canonical female, not impudent, and absolutely intimate, revealed only after trust has been achieved.
