With the desire to create a collective experience that values diversity and redefines the notion of power and beauty, Ermira Goro creates “Meetings” of very different people, – gender, ethnicity, body, age, ability – in an attempt to disconnect viewers from the dancer’s identification with a body youthful, muscular, trained, “perfect”.
Dance Days Chania Summer Performance
How does one endure or enrich a movement from the peculiarities of each body? How does a “‘untaught'” body transform from a movement or rhythm that does not belong to its everyday vocabulary? What feelings can be caused by this almost voyeuristic matching?
Through the exploration of individuality and personal kinesiological expression, as well as the complexity and diversity of the performers bodies, “Meetings” lead the viewer to distinguish on stage parts of his own self and to review what “right” and “appropriate” means.
