Songs of Ascension
Beatriz Moreira, Iris Auguste and Giulia Micelli
Palcos Instáveis / Coproduction with Teatro Municipal do Porto

The Landscape, Bodies and Milk.

Songs of Ascension was choreographed in 2019 by Iris Auguste in collaboration with Coletivo LaMaison. The piece is a sensorial journey that investigates female bodily freedom, allowing performers to explore a spontaneous relationship with objects, sounds and other bodies. The game is played with your eyes closed to switch off the violence of unattainable ideals of beauty, representations and preconceived ways associated with femininity. Connecting with the authorship of their own body, the performers.
