Performed in a bed of soil, Rodadoras explores the themes of femicide and ecofeminism. Through a rhythmical jig of floor work three female dancers roll, fall and slam into the earth; their bodies becoming fully immersed in their surroundings. Shielded behind their hair which is tossed about and flailing, as though a protagonist, the performers are morphed into otherworldly creatures.
Rodadoras is a 24-minute outdoor contemporary dance performance set to an original score of Neapolitan folk music.
