In the series of "nOphelia" we present female dancers, performers, creators and choreographers who have experienced the beauties and struggles of pregnancy, motherhood and parenting. We are curious about their personal and artistic transformations, about their journeys as women, as mothers, as artists. Through their stories we also collect some advice for future mothers, who might deal with similar challenges in regards to their productivites, their bodies, priorities, our society and the passing of time.
We walk around the theme of 'femme fragile'. Opposed to Shakespeare's Ophelia – which character became the embodiment of mental fragility and female self-sacrifice – with "nOphelia" we aim to highlight the complexity, strength and sensitivity of these women.
