Dance, visual art and soundscapes come together in a performance that addresses the exploitation surrounding prostitution. Political themes dance in the performers’ bodies, resonating in space and grounding themselves in the testimonies of former prostitutes, social workers and human rights activists.
Created in Italy in 2013, Biloura is an intercultural and transdisciplinary performing arts collective made of artists from different professional and geographical backgrounds. In its headquarters in Valchiusella, in Piedmont, the group runs the Polimorfa performing arts festival.
