Gustavia is a show that brings together two choreographic artists who have very different backgrounds, but are prompted by similar concerns regarding the future of art, and especially performance art.
Gustavia is a woman’s name, but really just a stage name. Gustavia tries to talk about important subjects that are over her head; timeless classical subjects such as womanhood, death, theater, performance, self representation, the artist. Burlesque, not being a genre, provides a framework for the practice of dance, and for modes of thinking and doing. Through an indirect use of burlesque tools, Gustavia tries to freely describe her profession; sidetracks, worries, catastrophes and joys involving the relationship between contemporary art and life.
