“Filled with slapping, slashing, and kicking moves, the choreography matched the acting in emotional heat, and both expressed the sense that fury lies at the core of desire.” —Los Angeles Times
In Bella Copia‘s gritty mix of sex, power, and obsession “packs a visceral and psychological wallop” (New York Times). Working with a cast of contemporary dancers from across the globe, Prague-based Deja Donne’s exhilarating dance-theater is rich with incendiary social and metaphorical political content. With an intense physicality and explosive style, the performance suggests that human relationships are a power game—our basic human impulses fueling fantasies that are seductive, ugly, and humbling all at once. Contains adult content.
The Deja Donné performances kick-off Link Vostok’s Central European Dance Exchange, which includes artists from seven Central and Eastern European countries in a two-week residency that includes performances at the Southern Theater, October 13-16, 2005.
