Money worries, problems with work, cramped environments: In the age of COVID, domestic violence has increased. The majority of those affected are women. So it’s absolutely fitting that RambaZamba resident choreographer Sara Lu has now chosen to tackle this subject in her new piece. Also because girls and women with a disability are two to three times more likely to experience violence in their lives than the average demographic, as is revealed in the announcement for the new dance theater piece. In “Mujer”, the bodies of the RambaZamba performers develop transformational powers and morph into an artistic instrument for rebel ling against patriarchal structures, violence and dependency. This is a dependency that is reflected, among other things, linguistically, in the title of Spanish origin, which combines the two meanings of “woman” and “wife”. May the dance performance overcome this lack of balance.
