The inspiring approach of “ubuntu” embodies the desire for a constructive fundamental attitude based on respect, empathy, participation, change and hope. This human attitude to a collective worldview has great relevance in many countries in sub-Sahara Africa and is unified in the single word “Ubuntu”, which can originally be found in the Bantu languages of the Zulu and Xhosa: “A human becomes human through other humans.
21.06.2022 | BRITA
During 4 weeks Anna has been working as a dancer in the production BRITA, choreographed by Erika O’Neill.
How strong can a woman be? Is a woman’s strength limited by centuries of shapes and structures? How do we break out of a culture of distorted ideals? What is femininity and what would the woman’s reality look like if templates were never formed and boundaries were never drawn?
The dance performance ‘BRITA!’ invites you to a reality where women don’t have to wrestle because they have to, but because they want to. A parallel universe where women are allowed to be all they can be, without limitations of norms, structures, filters or ideals. With lively dancing, powerful wrestling and swinging “Folktronic”, the boundaries are blurred and make room for complete raw power. A physical tribute to the primal female power. A scenery of freshly pressed ‘Girl Power’, where the dancers break down the word `feminine’ with rawness and build it up with capital letters of muscle, sweat and poise.
