Duration 50’, no break

Created with the support by Pro Rodopi Foundation (Bostina, Bulgaria) and TNT Manufacture de chaussures (Bordeaux, France)

‘Hair’ is a collage of a few physical and emotional landscapes, based on initial choreographies by Petar Todorov, Desislava Mincheva and Gregor Kamnikar from the productions ‘Anatomy of Extreme’, ‘Delta’ and Chaos-Body without Doors’. The solos are put this time in a different context and are designed in a brand new visual line. The production uses the hair as a symbol of the female power. Hiding the hair of the woman has been historically routed in many world cultures, incl. Bulgarian one. Playing with the image of the hair, the solo explores female sensitivity on issues like, confusion, fear, desire, freedom with the means of the physical theatre.
