LA MAMA MOVES! DANCE FESTIVAL presents ANABELLA LENZU’S ‘NO MORE BEAUTIFUL DANCES’

453

NEW YORK -The LaMaMa Moves! Dance Festival presents the unique artist ANABELLA LENZU as she declares No More Beautiful Dances,” a dance/theater solo in which the spoken word, drawings, photographs, and video projections merge to offer a very personal view of femininity and what it means to be a woman today.  

In this interdisciplinary solo, Anabella’s wrestles with issues of identity as experienced by a contemporary artist who is also a woman, mother, and immigrant.  “I had arrived at a moment where I am 42 years old,” she states, “have two kids, notice my body aging, and reflecting on other changes psychologically and emotionally.  The work keeps me humble and honest about who I am and what I look like.  I show the things most people want to hide as dancers.  I show the body of a 42-year old woman.  For me it’s about embracing who I am at the moment.”   On another level, the artist feels that through dialogue with collaborators and mentors, her work starts out specific, but arrives at a universal message.
The choreography is captured not only by the audience, but by two live-streaming cameras, one above and the other below the stage area, two laptops and two projectors.  Technology in this piece is a magnifying glass, showing something normally hidden from view.  The cameras become a portal to another dimension for the audience and performer.
