Eve was expelled from the Garden of Eden after she ate from the forbidden apple. Since then her erratic soul is still present in people lives on the earth.

This is the story of her descendents: a singer, a French bohemian woman, a general, a witch, a politician and Janis Joplin. All of them have a common destiny marked by temptation, desire and rebellion.

 

Diana’s Gadish background in contemporary dance and choreography is visible in her clown.

The spectator is plunged into a world of emotions and sensations. A tale of womanhood is explained through the expressions and movements of the characters.

 

Genesis Joplin presents a singular humor, entertaining, disconcerting and poetic.

HICCUP FOR HOME

Second version of "Hiccup for Home. " It premiered at Melkweg (Amsterdam) as final work at SNDO. For this occasion, the original one was adapted to the interpreter Ria Higler. While the first version has a more raw quality and theatrical elements are as limited as possible, in this second version some theatrical elements as clothing items, text and character have been introduced, moving in a delicate balance between real and fictitious space.

HICCUP FOR HOME II

A body is looking repeatedly and unsuccessfully for a place to belong and a structure in which it can feel safe.

 

This time, the architecture of the theatre is used in an unusual way. The performer moves on and off the stage, appearing and disappearing. Thus, the theatre becomes a window that allows the viewer to see only snippets of the work.

 

On one hand it emphasizes the real space, the architecture of the theatre, and at the same time, using the elements provided by this same architecture, it hints at a fictional universe.

 

With a very unique body language and unusual staging, here we face the question of how cultural mechanisms respond to the need to cling to structures and identities, and at the same time, our inability to maintain them.
