ME TOO GALATÉE
Allegory of creation or male domination? Brazilian-born choreographer Pol Pi reminds us of all the symbolic violence contained in Ovid’s fable.Behind the artist’s attachment to his work, Galatea’s passivity – which did not even have a name in the original text – is striking. At a time when the most retrograde thoughts are being expressed in the open in Brazil, Galatea is here the starting point for a reflection on the idealization and formatting of the female body through masculine and patriarchal gaze.
