self-portrait of a woman

Demis Volpi

“On the morning of the first rehearsal day for this new solo, a very surreal event happened to me in the energizing city of Chicago, which led me to fully identify with a woman at one of the beaches. It was a wordless connection and fleeting moment, but that image became a visual expression of how I felt right there and then. That image became representative inspiration for this work, a work that so clearly represented me in the shape of that woman, and so self-portrait of a woman was conceived.”  Demis Volpi

The choreographic residency with Demis Volpi was underwritten in part by the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany Chicago.

Created for and premiered by DanceWorks Chicago at the Stadttheater in Aschaffenburg, Germany, on February 8, 2014.
