When I look at a Strawberry, I think of a Tongue … an intimate seduction between movement, music and an audience.
Dancers / choreographers Lisi Estaras and Serge Aimé Coulibaly, musician / composer Mirko Banovic and dramaturge Sara Vanderieck are inspired by Goliarda Sapienza`s novel The art of Joy. The grand and sensual history of a woman who has only one goal in life: to be free.
Sexual desire, the growth into adulthood, social and political engagement flow through this ingenious novel and form the base for a subtle quadrangular relationship that fans out to and with the audience. The different story layers are executed in an original playlist of separate tableaux. The playlist of each performance depends on the artists, the audience and the specific setting of the location.
