Eu Fêmea is a short solo for an actress. A physical performance that takes place within a structure alluding to a Peep Show. The actress, enclosed within the circular stage, has no physical or visual contact with the public, who watch this particularly intimate, poetic show in individual booths equipped with headphones.
With an iconographic-inspired narrative and a contemporary language based on the narratives of the body, Eu Fêmea reflects on the invisibility of women over time, and the historical and cultural, physical and spiritual heritage that inhabits the female being today. What remains of that past and what resists and transforms itself? What subject or subjectivity exists outside of History and language, culture and power relations?
In Eu Femea, a body is transmuted into other bodies. From the collective to the one, from the veiled to the uncovered, in a trajectory that marks, among others, the divine, the maternal, the animal and the outcast, submission and rebellion, between Eve and Lilith, Mary and Mary Magdalene, a woman in search of balance and affirmation is revealed, gradually freeing herself from the different layers with which, throughout history, we have covered her up, made her invisible and subjected her.
What is it to be a woman today?
What is the feminine and what body defines it?
Since emancipation, what freedom?
