DOUBLE BILL Savušun + Hate Me, Tender
16 YEARS +
Hardly anyone associates the Holy Virgin Mary with hatred and feminism - at least not until now! In the beginning of her choreographic-performative research on these very themes, Teresa Vittucci liberates Mary from the sacred attributions as pure and perfect, innocent and holy. As icon, slave and heroine at the same time, she brings the Queen of Love back to earth, shows her ambivalence and her queer feminist potential. The stage is set for Matriarch Maria, her crusade for vulnerability and the enormous power that derives from it.
TERESA VITTUCCI (Zürich) is a choreographer and dancer. She graduated from the Konservatorium Wien, the Ailey School, the SEAD, and the Hochschule der Künste Bern. She collaborates with Nils A. Lange, Marie Caroline Hominal, Simone Aughterlony, Claire Sobottke and Michael Turinsky. Teresa has received numerous scholarships and a recognition award from the city of Zürich. Her works U betta cry, Lunchtime, All Eyes on and Hate me, tender are toured nationally and internationally. All Eyes on will be shown at the Swiss Dance Days 2019.
