MonoFest’22

5. Uluslararası Tek Kişilik Oyunlar Festivali  (23-28 August 2022)

 

Poro, toplumsal cinsiyet rollerini ele alan bir performans. Bunlar, insanları kendilerinden uzaklaştıran ve hapseden kalıplar, katı yapılar olabilirler. Çeşitli cinsiyet rollerine dolanmış dansçı, onları keşfeder ve bir çıkış yolu bulmaya çalışarak onları esnetir.

 

Acı ve hayal kırıklığı yoluyla, dans vahşi ve öfkeli bir coşkuya dönüşür.

Dansçının üzerine bir ışık huzmesi gelir: o artık bir dansçı değildir. O bir orman, o bir hayvan, o bir geyiktir.

 

Erkeklik ve kadınlığın farklı niteliklerini ve klişelerini somutlaştırmak için dansçı, çağdaş dansın araçlarını ve biçimlerini Butoh’un duygusal derinliğiyle birleştiriyor. Dansçı, Marja Burchard’ın çağrışımlar yaratan müziğinin öncülüğünde, fikirlerin ya da sadece temsilin değil, duyguların, mücadelelerin dansında sürekli transforma uğruyor. Katı bir cinsiyet kimliği içinde, toplumun verdiği kalıplara sığmayanlar için ritüel bir dans.

 

Poro is a performance that deals with the gender roles that society gives to us. They can be boxes, rigid structures which en- trap and keep people apart from themself. The dancer, entangled in various gender roles, explores them and stretches them, trying to find a way out.

Through suffering and frustration, the dance evolves into a wild and furious raptus.
A ray of light comes on the dancer: she is not a dancer anymore. She is a forest, she is an animal, she is a deer.

To embody the different qualities and stereotypes of masculinity and femininity, the dancer is combining means and forms of contemporary dance with the emotive depth of Butoh. Leaded by the evocative music of Marja Burchard, she is continuosly transforming in a dance not of ideas or merely representation, but a dance of feelings, of struggles. A ritual dance for who doesn’t fit in those boxes gave by society, in a stricted gender identity.
