Inés Sybille Vooduness: No hay nido que me contenga ni me quiera contener (Barcelona; dance; suitable for all ages).

This child of Barcelona is Catalan and Haitian all at once. The youngest in a family of four girls, she describes herself as telling her own story through the medium of dance. Her choreographies express what it's like to be black in a country of white people and to be a woman in a world that seems made for men. You can see this in a danced narrative structured in the form of three chapters. The first one, entitled Estoy norteada por todas las voces que me hablan simultáneamente ["I am steered by all the voices that speak to me simultaneously"] (a quote from the writer, poet and queer theorist and activist Gloria Anzaldúa), tells us about the creation of a liquid, mixed-race identity that has no absolute truths. The second chapter, which lends its name to the entire work, is named, in reference to the LGBTQ+ writer Brigitte Vasallo: No hay nido que me contenga ni me quiera contener [There are no nests that can or will contain me] and tells us about the need to make our own way of loving and to reject the fears and burdens imposed by the patriarcharchy. Finally, in the chapter “En red [Networked] - how we shape ourselves, how we shape each other”, the artist presents an ending full of hope with new ways of interacting and imagining future groups.
