«STRAGILS«- Stockholm premiere 7/12
ABOUT THE SHOW: Stragils is a new physical, poetic, and explosive contemporary dance performance directed by Mireia Piñol. Created in collaboration with a fierce collective of five female dancers who take the audience on a journey that explores the paradox of human strengths and fragilities in equal measures. It is a journey through emotions, absurds, love, conflict, and humor, among many others.
The piece aims to inspire audiences to change, reflect, and understand. To become a Stragil is to be a supportive, strong, and fragile human being, full of love and respect for oneself and others. Connecting and fighting with the relationship with our built-in and imposed armor. Emotional camouflage, a state of denial and resistance, is juxtapositioned with our ability to accept, care, and understand.
Stragils will embody a new desire for an intricate fabric of moods and human survival mechanisms that will help us to thrive and carve out a safer space that we can call our own.
