"Fan de Ellas" is a dedication to three Latinx heroines: Gilda (Argentine cumbia singer), Yulimar Rojas (Venezuelan athlete) and Luz Marina Giraldo (Colombian single mother). The work is a celebration in which we intertwine their voices with ours. Actual facts and archival material are interwoven with our subjectivity, bringing movement, memory, words and soundscapes into dialogue. An invitation to question our fascinations and desires, to reflect on resistance, exhaustion, and struggle, and to celebrate the power of women.
In 2019, we premiered at the Sophiensaele. During the creation process, we realized that there were many references to diverse women and collectives that motivated and inspired us, and that we loved having around. So we prepared a fanzine and invited them to be part of this dedication. For Ufer Studios we will publish a second number of our fanzine.
We are also collaborating with Lea Marie Uria (journalist, dancer and author) to make Fan de Ellas accessible to blind and visually impaired people. Lea will provide a tactile tour of our stage before opening the door, and she will describe the piece in German through wireless headphones. This is another way to experience the play. We have also partnered with Dafne Narvaez Berlfein (video artist) who will edit Fan de Ellas live and stream it to our friends and families in Colombia, Argentina, Spain and around the world.
