Lyric Dance Company (IT)
Shame is what often prevents victims from reporting their aggressors, what keeps them living in psychological subjugation, feeling guilty and trapped and unable to ask for help. The choreography in “Shame” is inspired by Artemisia Gentileschi, the famous painter who became a symbol of the fight against violence towards women because of the courage she had in 1612, taking her rapist Agostino Tassi, a family friend, to trial. The eight-dancer ensemble of the Lyric Dance Company will bring to life her memory, taking audience members on an emotional and exciting journey and ultimately exalting beauty over brutality.
