5 black silhouettes liberated from gender attributes, a long blood-red glove, a couture gown… On stage, NO(S) DAMES come alive in an operatic curiosity cabinet, mixing fantasized videos and divas’ accessories to explore the morbid fetichisms these “Divanities” carry, intertwining glamour and death in the great tradition of male Romanticism. In 3 acts, No(s) Madonnas, No(s) Bitches, No(s) Witches, the 5 artists redistribute the roles and disrupt these sexist clichés, to give a new life to our diva’s arias.
