What Is The Weight Of Your Desire (VerTeDance)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013

This is a fearless, expressive and moving show. The four dancers use brave and very physical dance moves which aim to answer a series of questions about femininity. What do your clothes say about you? Why do females want to change their bodies so much? Do we expose our true selves when we expose our bodies? Dancing to an impressive selection of music, the dancers present both the oppression that surrounds women and the stereotypical ‘men’s magazine’ view of the female body (which is shown in a hilarious over the top catwalk type dance). Constant eye contact with the audience makes this a very real piece of theatre, and turns it into a very sympathetic show. Clever, exciting, funny and intense.

Zoo, until 25 Aug (not 7, 14, 21), 6.00pm.
