Called “The Imitation of the Rose” Panmela Castro’s performance invites the female audience to interact with the dress-work.
The notion of sorority is at the heart this work – and not only unity among women, but also empathy and the search to achieve common goals. The work performed at the Republic Museum gardens is a celebration of sisterhood that started with this campaign to raise money for my dress’s fabric .
This performance was part of the exhibition curated by Isabel Portella “We are All Clarice”, with works by twenty artists that honor Clarice Lispector. Through her many stories and characters, Clarice depicted the imprisonment of the female condition and the intense desire for freedom. A parallel with the notion of epiphany in her work will be made in the performance “The Imitation of the Rose”.
