“I describe the format of the work as dance documentary piece. It is a combination of reality and a fictional world presented through contemporary dance. Female bodies in different times, different places and situations show us how society can perceive women. Prejudices that are build through the imposition of stereotypes. With this work, we would like to bring a hidden reality in our society to the surface.” ~ Marina Mascarell 2016

In a world where it is fashionable to be standard which is welcome a single mindset or an official line of thought where any thinking person with a distinct or different brightness will be punished and silenced. Marina used extracts from Russian classical litterature for creation of the piece.
