iwoman 2.0​

A dance theater duet piece, created by Shlomit Fundaminsky in collaboration with the composer Dganit Elyakim.

Dancers: Ravid Abrbanel & Einat Ganz/Shlomit Fundaminsky

Co maker: Einat Ganz

Duration: 20 minutes


The piece is an ongoing, absurd, grotesque attempt to be the perfect woman- the ideal- does she exist?

The soundtrack that accompanies the piece is mostly textual as it flow through monologues, mantras, sighs, moans and music. It forms a collage that compresses the past and present of female oppression and pathology, as it is documented in the mass media (radio, television and the internet). The time axis moves with no distinction between past and present, the materials are sampled from internet archives.

The dance is a sequence of associations, thoughts, feelings and feminine images from daily life. The dancers reflecting one another. They are friends, sisters, mother/daughter or lovers. Their body sculptures women's shapes from small to large, from sexy to obnoxious. They shift through icons such as warrior women, divas, goddesses, double heads or multiple arms. They are chasing the ever changing, always demanding trends and fashions of the fragile definition of female beauty.
