SONIA BUSTOS + RACHELLE BOURGET
Sonia Bustos | Luz : Dentelle
How do we care for our bodies after experiencing sadness and fear? After fighting and reporting abuse, how do we transform pain into light? Luz : Dentelle is an act of healing for women who have been assaulted, murdered, or who are missing. Two large white Mexican folk dance skirts become the catalyst for this ritual that seeks to inspire strength and hope. Joined onstage by musician and singer Moe Clark, Sonia wishes to illuminate bodies with unwithering flowers. This project is part of the LUZ trilogy, dedicated to those who resist patriarchal violence.
Rachelle Bourget | AFTER THE CAUSE (extrait)
Exploring themes of shame, confession, isolation, and the deconstruction of sex and beauty, this solo contemplates our need to escape the consequences of our choices. There is a universality in experiencing the sting of regret, even though it can lead us to suffer in silence. A work with cathartic origins, AFTER THE CAUSE is a vital act of purification for the choreographer-performer.
