SO?!WHAT is a one-woman show that seamlessly combines choreography, visual and plastic arts. Ariadna Gironès dance through different physicalities as she bends, distorts and transform her body. A performance that aims to reflect on society's binary notions of femininity and masculinity.
The performance is a unique combination of painting-like images, an anxiogenic and unconventional universe, backed by a sound creation that mixes voice-over, electronic music and rhythms inspired by Indian music.
Ariadna's path converges with the powerful figure of the Hindu goddess Kali, she is a warrior, a nurturing mother, a sensual lover, and a symbol of life and death intertwined, she personifies boundless and existential freedom. Through the incarnation of this paradoxically grotesque deity, she guides the audience on a journey that forges a liberating path to empowerment.
A story of fears, power and taboos.
A woman's look at a woman's body.
A dance, a ritual, an outlet.
