Interview with Lenio Kaklea

Choreographer and dancer Lenio Kaklea introduces her 2017 solo piece A Hand’s Turn. Conceived for two spectators at a time, the performance draws from the intimate experience of reading, hollywoodian cinema and gender theory to address the question of how bodies are choreographed, be it by our relationships, by popular culture or in the frame of work.
