DamaeDance’s mesmerising outdoor work IRMÃ-sister is an exhilarating, cutting-edge exploration of the beauty and challenges of women’s relationships, looking at how they affect and shape the way we perceive ourselves and our surrounding environment.
Narrated with an athletic and restless movement language, two women face a journey through conflict and harmony, tenderness and anger, misunderstanding and support, from which they can emerge only with a renewed understanding of themselves and the other. Complex and thought-provoking, IRMÃ challenges classic preconceptions about women’s representation on stage, celebrating their strength and power and ultimately portraying
women, who have weight, can sustain weight and at the same time display vulnerability.
“It’s thoroughly engaging and amazing to watch. I haven’t seen anything like what they do
– it’s really fresh and really unusual”
(Anthony Missen, Co-artistic director Company Chameleon)
