MODERN WOMAN IN SEARCH OF SOUL
Ivanochko et cie-projets de performance (Montreal)

Modern Woman in Search of Soul looks closely at how certain cultural representations are embedded in the female body. Streamed live, the performers solicits and mobilizes the in-theatre and online audiences in a variety of ways to demonstrate the violence the representations play upon the female body.

Ivanochko manages to intertwine the visceral with the philosophical, the ordinary with the extreme, and the mundane with the utterly thought-provoking.
