a 30 min dance solo that is inspired by the witch dance from Mary Wigman. Joy uses different qualities of a woman in a ritualistic, animalistic and sensual way. The Piece is inspired by the power and mystical perspective of a woman as witch. The character creates different images in a playful way that leads to an energetic dance, combined with several influences of different dance styles like Voguing, hip hop ,Contemporary dance and Philippine folk dance.

Joy questions herself: How do we transform and which mask do we put on?
Can we control the mask and the shifts we make? What do we really feel and what is really important to feel? Are we authentically expressing ourselves or do we express ourselves through the expectation of others?

The short performance THE SHOOTING is about the first confrontation of two people who ended up their emotional and intimate relationship in a fight.
After following their first impulse of aggression, they realize the core of what once connected them and still does. Is there any trust, hope and tenderness left?
Joy and Luke are trying to find answers in a dynamic duet with the virtuosity of breakdance, isolated movements and fluidity of contemporary dance.
