PAULA QUINTAS CÍA
Contemporary dance show to convencional spaces | 50 min.
PLASTIC is a contemporary dance show that reflects on the role of women in consumer society.
The dancer, as if it were a Barbie doll, takes us on a journey inside her plastic wrapper, empty inside and hermetic on the outside.
But the plastic has other functions that are not seen. It can be an element to conserve and preserve important content. Protect the body that carries our experiences and emotions.
How do we choose what we want to show and hide from our body?
What vital moments are stored in it?
Which ones are saved and which ones are forgotten?
How do we transform our bodies to hide our emotions?
What do we let see through the plastic that surrounds us?
Paula Quintas finds her place in a field that mixes the theatrical and the choreographic to question the rigor that society exerts on the external appearance of women. A corseted role from which he intends to free himself in an exercise to break the stereotypes of control and the frivolity of those looks that do not see beyond the superficial.
PLASTIC is a show that transmits a positive discourse of liberation.
