BABAE

A 30min Solo work inspired by the "masterpiece of strangeness”,  Mary Wigman’s Witch Dance. 

Raised and classically trained in Germany, Joy examines inherited vocabularies, reconfiguring what it means to summon the power and mystical practices of woman as witch. Combining her roots in Philippine folk dance, classical/ contemporary training and vocabulary of hip hop and voguing, BABAE is a one woman interplay between the animalistic and sensual qualities of ritual and power.
