[8:tension] Young Choreographers’ Series Teresa Vittucci: HATE ME, TENDER
Teresa Vittucci: HATE ME, TENDER © Yoshiko Kusano
Mary, the Mother of God, must be saved. Swiss based Viennese choreographer Teresa Vittucci folllows a self-imposed quest: she wants to emancipate the biblical Virgin Mary and to reinstate her in her ambivalent role as one who loves unconditionally and as an ambassador for queer feminism. To this end, solo performer and great singer Vittucci has spruced herself up. However, her immaculate veil is sinfully red and her body isn’t exactly made up chastely. With a little help from Donna Summer, she feels the lustful pain of love and introduces the audience to the erotic wonder of one of her shoes.
