Performance | Saturday 21 September | 11.15am, 1.50pm, 3.35pm | 20 minutes
Three figures emerge from a bed of soil, rolling, falling and slamming into the earth. Fully immersed in their surroundings, their hair tossed and flailing, the performers are morphed into otherworldly creatures. Rodadoras considers ideas of femicide, women left and lost in rivers and wastelands, through contemporary dance and Capoeira (Afro-Brazilian martial art), bringing the female form and the earth together.
This is a fringe event and included with admission. No booking necessary.
