Programa Escenas do Cambio 2020

A black flag, symbol of resistance, floats slowly in the night. Its movement and the sound of the fabric that ruffles the air become both the choreography and the sound. With a point of view that crosses the limits between artistic disciplines, the Polish/Canadian choreographer and interpreter Ula Sickle populates the stage, in a test of physical and moral resistance, with a varied group of actors accompanied by the sound artist Yann Leguay.

It is an anarchic activity that takes place over 4 hours, inspired in the recent protests around the world, and in particular the mass Polish demonstrations in defence of women’s rights, called the “black protest”.

Ula Sickle

This choreographer is one of the most extreme figures in contemporary European dance. Working at the boundary between the visual arts and the stage, she has developed a language in which everything revolves around the bodies, light and music. Her work has continued to develop since Kinshasa Electric, a key work of the previous decade.
