Performed in a bed of soil Rodadoras is motivated by femicide and eco-feminism. Through a rhythmical jig of floor work three female dancers roll, fall and slam into the earth; their bodies becoming fully immersed in their surrounding. Shielded behind their hair which is tossed about and flailing, as though a protagonist, the performers are morphed into otherworldly creatures, Rodadoras draws from contemporary dance and Capoeira, and is set to an original score of Neapolitan folk music.
