Celebrate the body: in Eros, six women go in search of the power and pleasure of their sensuality. In a contemporary ritual, social taboos are ignored and womanhood* is celebrated in all its facets.
Celebrate the body!
Whereas her last performance Spectrum was about colour, Eros focuses on nothing less than female sensuality. Boukje Schweigman about the work process: ‘It was like opening Pandora’s box. Many women have a lid on their lower abdomen, so to speak, and for good reasons. Centuries of oppression and abuse have left their mark.’ They sought out and left behind those dark sides, the shame and guilt, in the safety of the rehearsal room. They wanted to cross the threshold, rediscover the joy, the eroticism of the body and the innocent, cheerful and playful zest for life.
