Past event


CADELA FORÇA takes as its starting point the confabulation about some cases of femicide that happened in different parts of the world in the last decades, being carried out through practices that involve resurrection and re-enactment, amalgamated with theatrical language and performance.

At the Proximamente festival, Bianchi shares the first chapter of the work The Bride and the *good night, Cinderella, a kind of prologue, in which she narrates her studies on the tragic history that involved the last performance of Italian artist Pippa Bacca, who was murdered during the performance Brides on tour. Cadela Força will debut in 2022.

*Spiked Drink/Date rape drug

The audience will attend the work in progress version of this performance. 

Carolina Bianchi is a Brazilian theatre director, performer and dramaturg, currently based in Amsterdam, as DAS Theatre program’s participant 20/22.  Her practices lay between theatre, performance and dance and aim to interfere in the historical line and destabilize the patriarchal order – diving in phantasmagoria, historical pacts, gender crisis, colonial heritages, and eroticism as performative tools.

She is director of the collective CARA DE CAVALO (Horse’s Face) (São Paulo), with whom she created the pieces: O Tremor Magnífico (The Magnificent Tremor) (2020), LOBO (Wolf) (2018), the outdoor performance Quiero hacer el amor (I wanna make love) (2017), and the lecture performance Mata-me de Prazer (Kill me by Pleasure) (2016).

Carolina is currently working on a new piece, CADELA FORÇA, which will premiere in 2022.  The first chapter - "The Bride and the *Good Night Cinderella” received support from residencies in DAS Theatre – Amsterdam/Holland, in Central Elétrica- Porto/PT, Pride Festival – Belgrade/Serbia and Próximamente/KVS – Brussel/Belgium.
