Reservations: 320 808 6286 - 300 472 4299
The first femenine performance encounter "LAWOMAN" intends to weave networks with artists women whose works address the different meanings of the body and territory.
Using performance as support of the invisible body, we though in this encounter as a central, diverse and creative point in order to place us from what is happening with the feminine art within an historical context in which women are fighting to decide for own bodies, for own genre and our ideas.
The importance of LAWOMAN as an inclusive project allow us to address "the femenine" from different posibilites. Image, body territory, performance are for us an urgency, we consider actors of change in front of the feminine issues, starting by the phrase #niunamenos we wanted to go beyond and put on the table works of women, in order to discuss, active, find us and know us...
