DANCE | SITE SPECIFIC | NATIONAL PREMIERE
Through the iconic classic The Sleeping Beauty, a CONTEMPORARY FAIRY TAILS come on stage: a GENDER-FREE teenagers placed in the Gen Z. These classical figures interact with a digital voice/entity creating dramatic and ironic nuances revoking the relationship between robot and human, mother and child, teacher and student, business and pleasure. The strong technological presence and the feeling of being part of an useless generation, produces emotional burn out, depersonalization and cynical attitude. Sleeping Beauty – Work Bitch! is an ironic POLITICAL MANIFESTO against the unproductive criticism.
