4pm | luciana achugar

¡Bendita Tú Eres! (aka BLESSED ART thou) explores the possibility of making a solo in which the body itself is the site, the territory. It explores the possibility of performing as an act of becoming rather than as an expression of the Self; a performance as an undoing, a liberation from western assumptions of beauty, femininity and order.

(re)Source, an in-progress investigation by MBDance

Improvisation, lineage, resilience. re(Source) is a danced solo exploration of how and when we call on these assets and when we reject them entirely. Conceived of and embodied by Maria Bauman (www.mbdance.net), with sound composition by Shea Rose (www.shearose.com), the dance also includes a unique visual landscape co-created by Maria Bauman and each set of audience members with advising by Nontsikelelo Mutiti (www.nontsikelelomutiti.com).
