The Many Ladies (Las Muchas)
The Many Ladies (Las Muchas) is the latest performance of the dance company Mariantònia Oliver and the result of collaboration between the choreographer Mariantònia Oliver and a group of eleven women, the residents of Maria de Salut on Mallorca, aged between 70 and 82. The performance is a reflection on the elements that describe us and the importance of other people's impression of us in the formation of our identity. It was first performed in the Es Baluard Museum in Palma de Mallorca.
The Mariantònia Oliver dance company has been active in the field of performing arts on the Balearic Islands since 2000 when its founder moved to Mallorca. It is the residence group in the Ca Ses Monges cultural centre where they perform and deliver their knowledge of dance to the general public. Their creative work is aimed at both family and adult audiences and they tour in Spain and at a number of international festivals. (Cecilia Molano)
