Amenti Theatre Company
The Rotterdam dance collective Amenti is no stranger to Motel Mozaïque. Their performances Anima and Ayahuasca were shown at our festival before and artistic director Gil ‘The Grid’ Gomes Leal played a key role in our Liquid program in 2019. Amenti Theater Company was also one of the highlights of the MOMO Fabrique festival last September with their powerful new dance performance Kali.
Under the name Amenti Theater Company, the dance company gives age-old myths a contemporary twist, as was also seen during MOMO Fabrique last September, where they performed the powerful dance performance Kali.
Their new performance Lilith is about the dark feminine, inspired by the experiences of the different women who play in the play. The mythical figure Lilith symbolizes suppressed female energy and sexuality. The enormous power that women possess and that is suppressed by the world is the driving force behind this dance and music performance.
