On September 17th – 20th, 2016, Zornitsa Stoyanova will re-mount her solo multimedia performance Explicit Female as part of The Fringe Festival at Vox Populi Aux Performance Space, 319 N 11th St., 3rd floor, Philadelphia, PA. Tickets will be sold online through the FringeArts website and at the door $20 general admission and $15 discounted.
Explicit Female is an immersion into the female body. Featuring personal narratives, custom designed lighting and live feed special effects; it aims to process the mystery of the shapeshifting form half of the world resides in. It abstracts the flesh, disassembling and assembling the human, the female, and the mother. Casual, yet intimate, the performance strives to connect deeply and kinesthetically to the viewers, at times asking them to participate in the very creation of the event itself.
Known as a choreographer in Philadelphia, since the birth of her son Zornitsa has primarily worked with photography and film. An extension of her visual art, Explicit Female is the first evening length work since 2013 and was created during Zornitsa’s artist residency at Fidget Space 2015-2016.
