Trailer frau blush

A dance performance engaging in a dialogue with the reality of the 21st century where the woman and her different faces are the subject of a debate.

It offers a view on femininity as told from a number of points of view. It talks about the significance of social roles that are inscribed to or assumed by us. The frau blush show is an attempt to touch upon the issue of how crucial are on one hand our self-image and, on the other, the image of ourselves we show to other people. What is the significance of a conscious mind and our focus in life and what is the significance of the subconscious mind and the behaviours we are trained to assume in the course of the socialization process initiated at birth. What impact do different social groups that we are part of have on us, and how do our own personal experiences and the path of life we are modelling for ourselves direct us? The show is a combination of performance art, contemporary dance and new choreography made up of different stories. Not only for women.

The performance contains nudity.

“What is your most beautiful experience connected with femininity?

How much of your mother do you see in yourself?

What terms do you associate with women?

to make someone blush, to blush

to feel ashamed or shy”.

Agata Życzkowska
