Woman Running with the River” is about a new creation myth of humankind. The performance begins with an encounter of a woman and a man, starting from a learned patriarchal relationship (in the present). An unequal balance of power relation splits the woman’s integrity as a subject that makes her question and look for a change. She goes through a journey by the river (in the past), where she discovers the equal ‘origin of life’ through ‘the myth of the river’, which empowers her integrity and the relations (in the future).
It is a dance theatre piece with no text. (+12 years old)
