Body as a Weapon (2020)

"Discipline, perseverance, dedication - Kramerová shows and feels it convincingly."  Jacq. Algra Het Parool

Body as a Weapon is a dance and multimedia solo which examines the cultural and historical context of Eastern European socialist propaganda and highlights the use of female body as a tool for political domination. Intense performance of precision, repetition and vulnerability, Body as a Weapon shows an intimate physical confession expressed through movement manipulation, text and video.
