"Vazana’s choreography evokes a sense of wildness while remaining aesthetically clean and elegant."
Ori Linkinski | The Jerusalem Post
The piece won the Audience Award at the MASDANZA International Solo Choreography Competition, The Canary Islands 2013.
The piece deals with an encounter of a woman with the social and public spheres. In order to feel a part of them she needs to prepare herself and put on her social, cultured image. The exposure of this particular aspect of her existence pushes aside her instinctual and so called uncivilised sides.
The tension between these two parts of her soul grows. Which of the two sides will win? Or is this a daily struggle she needs to live with day after day?
