In Girls Dance, body attitude metamorphosed the outside shell of the performers into a narrative: a fragile body with a dangerous face. Blending classical shapes and extreme aesthetics, Girls Dance appeals for us to question our values of beauty, to create space for other kind of beauty, to re-evaluate the current concepts of beauty in society, to re-imagine what we can perceive as beauty, and finally, to allow our vision on it . In the body´s quest to accomplish its own loyalty in movement lies a theatricality. In the choreographic actions of Girls Dance lies a harmony and, in the assembly of choreographic material lies a freedom of independence, even a sentimental independency in this female Tour de force.
