“Hidden Body – Feared Body” bir ilkele dönüş ritüeli. Kadın bedeninin en ilkel algılarını hatırlama, yeniden canlandırma ve zamanda yol alarak bugüne taşımaya, odaklanan bir döngüden oluşuyor.

Belirsiz bir geçmişle yaşamaya alışmak nasıl bir duygu?
Kadın bedeninin tarihinin üstü örtülmüş, hafızası değiştirilmiş, hikayeleri erkek zihnine atfedilmiş. Farklı coğrafyalarda doğmuş, büyümüş, farklı kültürel sahip iki kadın; bu bilinmez tarihin en kuytu köşelerine birlikte gidiyor. Bedenleri üzerinden büyülü bir ifade yaratmaya girişiyor.

“Eva as created from Adam’s rib, we create ourself from a spell. A ritual dance and exploration through the woman’s body”.
Carmen Lafran

“We have to pull out our truth and emotions and what belongs to ourself, no matter how deeply hidden. If we are looking for ourself or want to face ourselves”
Gamze Öztürk

“Hidden Body – Feared Body” is a ritual of returning to primitive. It consists of a cycle that focuses on remembering, reenacting the most primitive perceptions of the female body and moving it to the present by moving through time.

How does it feel to get used to living with an uncertain past? The history of the female body was covered, her memory was changed, her stories attributed to the male mind. Two women, whose born and raised in different geographies and having different cultural backgrounds, are going to the most secluded corners of history. They are embarking on a quest to a magical expression through their bodies.
