Woman with Stones broadens the concept of drag with an entire pool of transformation fantasies.
Hybrid figures enter the stage. In a bewitching confusion of fluid identities and materialities, their bodies are inhabited by divas and stones, changing from role to role and sometimes, between the poetic and the supposedly banal, also falling out of role. In the joyful imitation of something one is not - or believes not to be - imaginary subjectivities unfold beyond mere gender order. What if nature herself wore drag?
CAROLINE CREUTZBURG, born in Berlin, studied at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen. Since 2009 she has been initiating her own stage projects, with which she pursues her interest in both strong and permeable frameworks. She is guided by the questions of implicit forms of addressing, self-determined subjectivity, the supposedly banal and the values of entertainment.
