“To me, ‘The Future is female’ means that no longer will female qualities be subordinated to male qualities. I want to live in a world that is collaborative. A world that is emotionally intelligent. A world in which we are linked and not ranked!”

- The Future is female by Madame Gandhi -

The trio Weaver by choreographer Anne-Mareike Hess is a choreographic round dance about the female body and its inevitable link to a history of violence and oppression, internalized over millennia. The image of weaving serves here as a metaphor for the connections between female fates across time and space, a choreographic basis along which the dancers' bodies connect and empower themselves. Perhaps the net of violence can be broken?

After the solos Warrior (2018) and Dreamer (2021), the trio Weaver is the third dance piece in which the artist tries to fight her way through the tangle of stereotypical ideas of being a woman. In order to deconstruct gender roles, Anne-Mareike Hess explores female identity inspired by mythology and popular culture.
