“My body, my country” dance theater performance & participatory workshop
Anabella Lenzu/ DanceDrama
“My body, my country” Dance Theater Performance and participatory visual art creative workshop
lead by Argentinean choreographer Anabella Lenzu at Queens Museum, NY
Saturday, September 29th from 2-4pm
How does our body becomes our homeland?
What does it mean to be a female human?
How do our bodies become a receptacle and messenger of the multiple realities we are immersed in?
During the 2 hour event, Anabella Lenzu performs excerpts of her dance-theater piece of “No more beautiful dances”, followed by a 10 minute Q & A afterwards.
The performance challenges the viewer to think about how they view bodies.
Afterwards she will lead a Body Mapping Workshop, where the partecipants use texts and drawings to share their own story of their bodies.
I would like to invite the audience, especially women living in Queens and NYC, to experience the same journey I went through in discovering my new body and accepting myself anew.
The aim of this event is to explore issues of identity and agency as experienced by a contemporary artist who is also a woman, mother and immigrant in the United States. We will explore identity and social relationships.
Body Mapping: an inter-generational dialogue tool helping people of different generations to talk to each other. The experience builds trust and deepens people’s understanding of how their lives are all connected with each other.
