In her performance, hip-hop dancer Farah Deen explores new ground, both in terms of her individual technique and innovative approach. She ventures out into a theatrical context rather unusual in urban dance and sets off on a journey through the fields of tension arising from religion and femininity. In her one-hour solo piece, she challenges a dominating worldview that defines a male figure as the human norm: the Vitruvian Man. What if Leonardo da Vinci had chosen a woman to depict idealised proportions?
