Host: Tanzquartier Wien
Veza Fernández - Amadora Llama
• Days with event
In Veza Fernández’s latest ensemble piece Amadora Llama, the dancers, a congregation of nuns, passionately and yearningly embrace the mystic union. These ecstatic experiences of the religious order comprise polyphonic dances and texts. Inspired by poems written by 16th century Spanish nun, mystic, reformist and poet Teresa of Ávila, Veza Fernández examines queer-feminist embodiments in religious contexts. The profound emotionality of saints and mystics holds emancipatory potential – and might even enable erotic self-empowerment. An awakening from blind lethargy, putting one’s trust into unfamiliar, emotional, mysterious, intuitive chaos.
Party ECSTASY: Following the premiere on 11 April we’ll be celebrating ecstatically together with the artists from 21.00 at TQW Halle G!
