Frame me femme

A performance with a physical relationship to the spoken word, which serves as a tool to perceive the poetical roads between talking, dancing and the relations with an object.

A continuous performance with influences from my previous work SOME, in which I interact with the space, accompanied by technical influences to invite the spectator to follow the performance with the freedom of his own way of looking. I put myself in a gender neutral role between man and woman , under the eye of the camera and the spectator. By staring back and returning to my own autonomy, putting myself in a different perspective. Everything that is present in the space experiences a certain dizziness and a step towards strength and fragility.

Suzy Blok of de Dansmakers about Andrea Zavala:

“Andrea Zavala will be graduating this summer from the School of New Dance Development (AHK). She strikes me as a versatile artist. She is both choreographer and performer and in her graduation performance ‘Some’ she shows her versatility in these fields. The performance is surprising, visual and three-dimensional. She mixes cinematographic aspects, text, singing and movement in a fresh and personal way. On Over het IJ Festival she will show work that fits perfectly into the space of a container. Her fantasy and intelligence make me curious and it matches the kind of artists that we from Dansmakers Amsterdam like to support in their development. By nominating her for the Container Programme I hope to give her a special chance to further develop her work in this setting and I get to know her better because I coach her. At the same time it is a way of getting acquainted for the both of us for a possible cooperation in the future.”
