"I am a woman. And an endearing warmth embraces me when the world knocks me down. It is the warmth of other women, of those who have made this sensitive, fighting corner of life, with soft skin and a tender warrior's heart".

Alejandra Pizarnik.

In 2016 we began a process of documenting the female artists from the Generation of '27, "Las Sinsombrero" (The Hatless Women). They included Maruja Mallo, Marga Gil, María Teresa León, Concha Méndez and Rosa Chacel, who played an active part in Spanish cultural agitation and social modernisation in the 1920s and 1930s but were silenced by Franco's regime after the Spanish Civil War. 

What began as an investigation ended up being the starting point for Mucha Muchacha. Our first full-length piece focused on the concepts of empowerment, determination, voice, participation, freedom and cooperation. 

Mucha Muchacha seeks to talk about the now, about how we feel in this time. Quoting the journal written by Rowlands (1997), our creation relies on the three forms of empowerment: "Power to, power with and power from within". In this sense, the challenge for us is to express ourselves through contemporary dance and Spanish dance, but putting them in crisis for their capacity of transformation and dialogue with other arts. 

Mucha Muchacha is a dance performance about the present, a declaration of intentions about movement, community, femininity and ritual.
