Description We called her Bertha is a hypnotic stage work performed by two dancers and a double bassist. The work is based on the moving unison of female figures dressed in huge skirts, where bodily metamorphosis transports the viewer in time from youth to old age, from memories to dreams. In the picturesque work, in the hinterland of the mind, hopes become reality, landscapes are distorted, and the passage of time is unpredictable.
