Based on make-believe worlds, sibling rivalry and living-room dances, Pleated is a lively, imaginative choreography for three women. Daring physicality and humble gestures are (re)constructed from personal memories and old home movies, creating autobiographical work that explores the brutal and beautiful landscape of growing up with sisters.


My Tempest, Ana Patricia Farfán, choreographer

A Prospero whose spells do not work anymore, a Miranda who does not love Ferdinand and instead wants to become a magician herself, an Ariel who is not interested in being released by Prospero … these challenging situations for characters from Shakespeare’s The Tempest live in Ana Farfán’s choreography, My Tempest. Through movement, theatre and live music a tempest transforms their existence, while the audience witnesses the construction of the ship that will take everybody to an unexpected land.

Join the Artists for a Talk Back on March 13th, after the performance of The Tempest
