MonoFest’22

5. International Solo Performance Festival (23-28 August 2022)

Lola Montez, 19. Yüzyılda yaşamış bir dansçı ve fahişedir. Bu tarihsel figür oyunda özgürlük ilkesi, cinsellik, kadının sanat ve siyasetteki konumu hakkında konuşma aracı olarak kullanılıyor. Lola, sadece bir kadın değil, iktidara, mülke ve hükmetmeye olan açlığı onu mutlak bir muhafazakarlığın hakim olduğu bir dönemde, liberalizmin sembolü yapıyor. Bir kadın tarafından temsil edilen bu hareket, eros ve ölüm arasındaki organik, kırılmaz ilişki ve otorite tarafından zayıflatılamayan, ruhun, bedenin ve zihnin özgürleşmesi için çabalayan bir özgürlük mücadelesidir…

 

Lola Montez is a dancer and a courtesan from the 19th century. Here she is used as a means of speaking about the principle of freedom, sexuality, and position of a woman in art and politics. Lola is not only a woman, her hunger for power, possession, and ruling, makes her a symbol of one era, of liberalism in the time of complete conservatism. She is the movement represented through a woman, an organic, unbreakable relationship between eros and death, the wave of freedom that does not get weakened by authority and strives toward the liberation of spirit, body, mind…
