Burka

Choreography: Eduardo Lao
Music: Dead can Dance
Costume Design: Eduardo Lao

Burka was born in 1998 from the impression that Eduardo Lao got from a photograph published in the press in which a group of Afghan women, dressed in burka, surrounded another who was without it. From this idea, the choreographer from Granada shows his particular commitment to the current injustice through Dance. It premiered at the Teatro de Madrid a year later.
In the author’s own words: “Imagine for a moment what we would feel if we were robbed of the freedom to choose or, better said, put ourselves in the shoes of those who, without having chosen it, were born in a place where this situation is an imposition”.
