Veza
Fernández’s

artistic work deals with themes of family, love and religion. Her approach is eclectic, poetic and expressive. Together with Christina Lederhaas, she explores the function of extreme situations in sound production through performances, workshops and labs.

Her ensemble choreographies are characterised by her own approach to what she calls “messy polyphonies”. In addition, Fernández often collaborates with different artists from Vienna’s queer scene.

The performance on 12 April will be followed by an Artist Talk with Veza Fernández and Denice Bourbon.

In Veza Fernández’s latest ensemble piece Amadora Llama, the dancers, a congregation of nuns, passionately and yearningly embrace the mystic union. These ecstatic experiences of the religious order comprise polyphonic dances and texts. Inspired by poems written by 16th century Spanish nun, mystic, reformist and poet Teresa of Ávila, Veza Fernández examines queer-feminist embodiments in religious contexts. The profound emotionality of saints and mystics holds emancipatory potential – and might even enable erotic self-empowerment. An awakening from blind lethargy, putting one’s trust into unfamiliar, emotional, mysterious, intuitive chaos.

Party ECSTASY: Following the premiere on 11 April we’ll be celebrating ecstatically together with the artists from 21.00 at TQW Halle G! Admission is free.
