SO?!WHAT is a one-woman show that combines choreography and visual arts. Accompanied by an all-women team, including visual artist Sandra Ordoñez and DJ La Fraîcheur, Ariadna Gironès dances the oppression experienced by women in our current societies and throughout history, and the marks it leaves on their bodies and their movement. 

In a picturesque, anxiogenic and offbeat universe carried by a sound creation mixing voice-over, electronic music and rhythms inspired by Hindu music, the performer portrays this oppression using movement, voice and prostheses.

Her journey leads her to the figure of the all-powerful Hindu goddess Kali, paradoxical and grotesque, whom she will embody to guide the audience on a journey to overcome the body-spirit duality and trace a liberating path towards empowerment.

A story of fears, power and taboos.

A woman's look at a woman's body.

A dance, a ritual, an outlet.
