i-clit

Show

A performance manifesto of the body in the flesh and in which the sexualobject becomes the subject.

A new wave of feminism was born – ultra-connected, ultra-sexual and more popular. But facing the ambivalent power of pop culture, where and how to position yourself in this battle as a young woman? What weapons should be used?

i-clit tracks these moments of fragility, where we oscillate between new forms of oppressions and empowerment.

This piece has received the Jo Dekmine 2018 price by Théâtre des Doms and has been nominated for the Prix de la Critique des journalistes Wallonie-Bruxelles for best dance show.
