“The problem was that we did not know whom we meant when we said ‘we’.” Adrienne Rich

If The Bull Won’t Come

With audio description | Adi Weinberg (Tel Aviv/Warschau/Berlin)  

20 – 21 Oct 2023Dance / performance

WOMAN. BEAST. MINOTAUR. The solo dance piece by Adi Weinberg is the story of a woman in transformation. Called out of her day-to-day life, out of the turbulence of her daily domesticity, she is propelled into an encounter she did not expect: with herself. As she comes into contact with her multiple parts, her many selves, she experiences the different elements that live harmoniously, destructively and chaotically inside her. She is many and one. The Woman’s journey echoes that of another. Pasiphae was cursed twice: first into falling in love with a bull and having to consummate that love and, second, cursed to live in isolation with her unnatural son, the Minotaur, in the labyrinth. But curses, like stories, have a second side. All carry a blessing, if only you can hold on long enough. If The Bull Won’t Come is a compelling, powerful and touching story of lives meeting, within one Woman.

"Weinberg embodies both characters: the woman who surrenders and the non-domesticated character of the wild animal. Also in herself. That is what makes this solo so intense and touching."
Astrid Priebs-Tröger, 19.11.2022
