Woman on running machine against a black background is a performance piece that works as a kind of x-ray of residents of more humble neighbourhoods. The woman reflects on: textile over-production, capitalism, entertainment, culture, language, nicknames and the service sector. But, above all, this story is laughter and thought.
Textual descriptions embrace physical details. An actress moving like a bull in its pen, like a kid in a ballpark, like guerrilla fighters in a tropical jungle. Basically a hand-to-hand between word and movement approached with humour and thoughtfulness.
Dance the word, tell the gesture.
