Alma & Amanda
Alfred ve dvoře resident Fleur Alexander reviews a selection of the theatre's nonverbal productions
The approach they use in regards to their bodies, in contrast to their choice of costume, queries the nature of femininity and the representation of sexual identity.
One woman presents herself in such a way that society would deem attractive; she subscribes to and fulfils this notion.
But then, by contorting her body so that the female form is barely recognizable, one begins to wonder what it was that made one pose more appealing than the other.
The two performers interchange to play all facets of both characters, demonstrating the fluidity and complexity of relationships.
This is part of a trilogy called "twilogy." Knowing this beforehand is useful, as Alma and Amanda -- although thoroughly enjoyable -- doesn't quite stand alone on its own, but perhaps its codependence on other parts is the point.
