The French-Portuguese choreographer Flora Détraz will be for the first time in Munich with a guest performance. The scenery of her work "Muyte Maker" is recalling the medieval imagery of a Hieronymus Bosch: Four women are sitting lined up at a table and are fixed in their place by their artistically woven braids decorated with apples and leaves as if by puppet strings. Through an exploration of medieval images, trivial ditties and grotesque paintings, Muyte Maker celebrates disobedient and irrational bodies. Flora Détraz draws on the full complexity of bodily expressions and shows femininity as a potential that is constantly in metamorphosis. In a humorous and overwhelming work, she celebrates the irrepressible power of joy that defies the rigid rules of morality and ethics.
