THE NARRATOR

Many women hide secrets in their lives, many women cannot talk about them and many conceal their experiences with childbirth, abortion or miscarriage. Is it a social taboo?

A French performer Cécile Da Costa dances, sings and undergoes extreme physical strain in order to tell her intimate story. The Narrator is about a desire to express the inexpressible, The Narrator is about the memory of a body which cannot completely forget, The Narrator is about finding a dance language through which we communicate our emotions.
