In September 2017, the Israeli choreographer Sharon Vazanna made her debut in the Netherlands during a memorable edition of All there is. Now she returns with Monsters, where she plays with the conviction that the striving for a perfect body alienates us from our own bodies. Three women scan their bodies from top to toe in search of memories: a scar, a trace, and a story. They find a map of experiences and untold tales: adolescence, pregnancy, labour. In each case it’s a revolt against their own body. The three women try to find their place in a society that sees the ever-changing female body as a source of danger. They try to perfect their imperfections. It leads to a never-ending struggle to hide the Monster.
