Reflejo Animal


“Reflejo Animal” one-woman solo. The performance explored animal/human behaviour through a journey of intergenerational character of a woman’s life. The on-stage performance was developed as part of an independent, long-going and female artist collaborative process. The creative method between the artists looks for ways of working together. “Reflejo animal” explored the notion of “romantic love” in Peruvian society. This concept caused repressive and frustrating experiences for women within the patriarchal system of Peruvian culture. As a response and reaction, the on-stage performance represents a fight for female power and freedom.
Theater directors Nidia Bermejo (2012-13) and Maria del Carmen Gutiérrez (2015), visual artists Ana Rosa Benavides and Hannah Zoe Zingre and composer Adele Fournet (2010-2015).
