A contemporary dance show and musical with visual effects, deconstructing female stereotypes

21 February 2019

Men should not turn a blind eye as women keep fighting and enduring.’ This is the starting point for Basque dancer and choreographer Mikel del Valle to rethink female stereotypes. Based on the story of St Agatha, the patron saint of Sicily and a virgin martyr highly venerated in the Basque Country, the show revisits the stereotypes she embodies and relates them to the taboo of breast removal in cancer treatment. Roles, pain, disease, strength, suffering, courage, society…

Mikel del Valle and his dance company, MDV Danza, offer a performance by men and women together that involves contemporary dance, visual arts and vocals, using the latest stage technology, original music and the voice of the soprano Miren de Miguel, plus texts in Basque.
