Choreography: Diana Niepce

In Anda, Diana, choreographer, dancer and writer Diana Niepce gives a very intimate insight into her personal story, while also questioning the body norm and challenging society’s prejudices and ideas about the aesthetics of the body.

“I want to speak of what we conceal. I did not exist almost my entire life because of the belief of having to exist in a body that was not my own. I will no longer apologize to the norm police that destroy everything diverging from the norm. I am not incomplete. I want to stop this violation of my intimacy and no one shall tell me how to be. I stopped looking for my body in the body of the other and I found myself as the other. In the secret deal that makes my body a storyteller, I found the meaning of its intimate and real condition.”
