Anne-Mareike Hess, Weaver © Zee Harmann


February 6 to 17, 2023

La Velette Studio / CCNR

As part of the Accueil-studio project

With Weaver, a dance piece for three female dancers, I would like to use the image of weaving and its inherent creative potential of connecting and net-working and transfer it into a contemporary choreographic reflection on our society today – a story in which past and future, individual and collective fate of the female body are interwoven into the dense fabric of social togetherness. 

Weaver is a continuation of my research along the deconstruction of gender stereotypes, taking this time a closer look on what is known to be female qualities. Instead of continuing the established narrative of the female to be weak and silent, I want to expose its strength and heroic potential, through the filter of three characters in their own very complexity.
