Metis is a choreographic and sound action. The project investigates issues related to gender geography, a field of study that questions, among other things, how the bodies of not binary people and women live and relate to the urban space. Métis (μέτις), in ancient Greek literally “advice, cunning,” is a strategy of relating to other people. It consists of “putting oneself in the other person’s shoes” by adopting for a moment the other person’s worldview in such a way as to imagine “what she sees that escapes me.” The performer’s bodies are moved by a sound scape composed of the heterogeneous network of stories, noises, questions, readings and sounds activating actions, dances and atmospheres that open toward an alternative vision and stimulate the creation of new urban worlds.
