''Julia B. Laperrière gladly blurs the lines between disciplines to create an art that confronts, questions and moves. UnCOVERED woMAN speaks of women, religion and resistance. With a delicate yet provoking stage direction, she delivers an instant of extreme beauty and reflection.'' - Quartiers Danses Festival


A bag around the neck is like a chain or a leash; put that bag on your head it becomes a burka; put yourself in the bag and you become for sale. How can merchandising of the woman’s body, opposed to its shameful covering, resonate to one another, and what are the questions that arise from this resonance ?

The main trigger for this piece was  the article Burka ist der neue punk, encountered in the german fashion magazine Blonde, which lead to this questioning: how can fashion, female objectification, burka and punk collide? From the collision of these very controversial issues, I think the most interesting questions can emerge, and these questions are what I wish to engage the audience with. Working with objects, symbols and nudity, the piece plays between hiding and revealing, presenting an ever evolving and morphing imagery. Reflecting upon the representation of female body on stage and in society, UnCOVERED woMAN aims to be a thought-provoking piece of visual poetry.
