A true lover of all physical disciplines and their applications in an artistic context, Austrian dancer Florentina Holzinger comes to us with a unique experience that essentially questions the idea of the perfect woman. With Apollon Musagèe, ballet is combined with martial arts, acrobatics and weightlifting to deliver the story of Apollon and his muses, the downfall of the former and the ironic elevation of the latter. Caught between high art and fast entertainment, there’s much to see and much to say here regarding ideas of femininity, utopianism, sexuality and the cult of the body through the ages.
