With a mix of medieval imagery, ancient poems, songs and grotesque paintings, Muyte Maker brings disobedient bodies to the stage.
Sensual, fun and energetic, this show is a tribute to the power of transformation and joy. Femininity is shown to be a force in continuous metamorphosis, while joy is presented as both physical and existential: a contradiction, and a state that transcends morality.
Flora Détraz, the young and talented French contemporary choreographer, has explored the relationship between voice and movement for several years, creating performances of fanciful polyphony.
In Muyte Maker four female dancers interpret pieces from the medieval and renaissance repertoire. Amusing, bawdy, satirical episodes explore the role of women in an archaic and patriarchal society.
The performers, mythological beings who constantly change, sing heartily, laugh polyphonically, dance blindly and create a cacophony of chatter, expressing physical complexity free of all constraints.
Muyte Maker is an ancient Flemish expression which means “mutiny”.
Is that therefore what we will see on stage?
