An indoor circus and theater 'solo' piece, a noncontemplative show.
What if we kept all the hair that we left behind in one box, one very big box, or in a room?
PELUDA is a story about hair, a story with hair and a story through hair. It's her turn. She will arrive first and you will soon get invited. She is
just one on stage but it is the story of many, a story about discomfort, about doubt, about frustration, fragility andempowerment.
Through the vocabulary of circus (trapeze, mouth balance, knife throwing) and humor, PELUDA visits the different relationships that one can have with our own hair, turning the spotlight on the absurdity of aesthetic judgement. It is just stupid hair, she knows, but all the stories behind revealed something else.
Bring your scissors, sit down and let your hair down.
'All these norms are a pity, many millions Gilette,too much Sex & the city, my bush is no regret.' (...)
