Temptation of Eve
“Eternal feminine” is that sacred energy that links woman to an inner mystery: Eve is every woman.
Woman, muse, inspiring, creative... I am multiple through this collective story revealing our fears and fantasies; I move, I grope, I stumble but remain the eternal feminine...
Beyond being a performance on the history of women through centuries, Temptation of Eve tells an intimate story of the female energy. This hybrid solo, mixing dance, theatre of body and object, takes us through the condition of women and the symbolism that it produces. Through multiple identities Marie-Claude Pietragalla evolves in different worlds, where she plays with the codes of theatre, from drama to comedy. The woman linked to the Sacred is sensitive to the reality of the mystery within herself
This journey into the world of women throughout history sent me toward an interior land: the feminine being. My tender, committed and lucid vision lands on our humanity, playing with the codes of our collective imagination.
Beyond a realistic evocation, I venture with you on a symbolic path, mixing humour and poetry. From within her inner voice, the woman questions and conducts her destiny, shaping herself through time by taking a militant position on her own condition. She increases her voice, morphing and reinventing herself every day.
In this performance, I wish to re-establish this centuries old rich dialogue, and make an ode to both anonymous and famous women who have made history.
"Pietragalla does it again!
The star triumphs in a solo at the Palace with Temptation of Eve."
"Pietragalla at the pick of her art. Perfect control, an accomplished artist, from dance to comedy. An overwhelming fresco, yet she twirls. Her performance seems as a sigh, Immediately we want more to stimulate the senses and experience the reflection of the finest instruments: the body. "
"An intimate and universal performance, where once again the dancer radiates. "
"The Audience succumbed to Pietragalla. Struck, overwhelmed, the audience has just experienced one hour and a half of incandescent emotions. "
"A magnificent retrospective ... Pietragalla sublimates the eternal feminine. "
