MUJERES will take place at the Chi Movement Arts Center in South Philadelphia, on September 22, 23 at 8PM & Sept 24 at 3pm and 7pm as part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival 2017. MUJERES is a split bill performance by female choreographers, Annielille Gavino and Evalina Carbonell.
Filipino artist, Annielille Gavino presents “HERstory”, a conceptual dance theater merging the personal with the political context of feminism. It investigates matrilineal bloodlines and ancestry, prior to colonialism. Gavino reconnects with her indigenous past to remind her future of her history and power. This is an interdisciplinary dance work that will include poetry, music and film. HERstory is supported by the Small but Might Art Grant.
Evalina “Wally” Carbonell’s new work, “Milk” deals with give and take, as it relates to the female body and motherhood. Using rhythm, breath, effort, and flow, the cast of dancers pour themselves into dance, relating this movement to motherhood. This work was awarded the Ellen Forman award which will allow Evalina to further her exploration of the project with Drexel University’s dance ensemble.
