The humorous dance performance Woman Hood explores different female worlds in four parts.

It shows extraordinary and idiosyncratic female personalities who possess different types of power, who are “different” or simply step out of line.

With her new creation, contemporary dancer Ursula Graber continues her investigation into female worlds and feminism. What does it mean to be a woman today? How should a woman be? How does she want to be? Is vulnerability the new strength? What distinguishes a sisterhood, a supportive network of women?

Inspired by Sara Ahmed’s book “Feminist Living!”(2017), the performance in the microcosm stage starts the attempt to create a feminist foundation based on strong female figures in a society that is still dominated by patriarchy. A magical stage world, with contemporary dance, elaborate costumes and rousing music.
