Faceless Hair Cry is a romantic duet danced solo. A transformation between temporary bodies using images of female biology, fertility, pollination and the act of ritual. Unusually shaped to attract pollinators. A cyclical journey from flora to fauna, to female form, in an artificial setting. Real and fake, nature and the artificial, and illusion versus allusion. Faceless Hair Cry is a redeveloped contemporary dance work created by Sofia McIntyre with compelling soundscape created by Paloma Schneideman.
Following on from the highly successful premiere in Tempo Dance Festival's Super Moon, Sofia has bought this work back to life for the Auckland Fringe 2020.
