Lady Magma

With a singular frankness and a physical commitment commensurate with her ambitious projects, Oona Doherty talks about women in Lady Magma. Designed as a Dionysian celebration, this new piece brings together five performers from Ireland and Europe in a common trance against a background of funk music. By multiplying the sources, of stories of witches in pagan, Celtic or Hindu rituals, Oona Doherty seeks to find an animal connection whose energy is capable of gathering the public. In doing so, she offers her dancers a choreography in the form of liberation and magnifies without detour the vital and sexual force of the female body.

 ''My work attempts to play with the barrier between the flesh and  the soul, the audience and the stage; to share a kinetic experience. I’m  motivated to explore states of pure metaphysical honesty. To bring the  sex, the punk, the romance and the chi back into the body, the black  box, the white cube, and Ireland.’'
