BIO

LEGACY FATALE is a performance art project exploring concepts of territorialities, matrilineage and the politics of resistance. Directed by artist Coco Dolle since 2008, Legacy Fatale offers an egalitarian punk female leadership with multi-sensory practices garnering an international roster of dancers and creatives, while uniting its utopian, conscientious post-feminist dream. Integrating social dance practices with modern dance vocabulary, the group's performances range from site-specific choreographies, to ceremonial happenings and art installations.

MISSION STATEMENT

Legacy Fatale pays homage to honor a global buried matriarchal lineage. I named Legacy Fatale after the long LEGACY of women's history of male-domination, violence and oppression and to building a new herstory - FATALE is inspired after a popular denomination stemming from women in film noir, where female characters were used as pivotal criminals enticing trouble-making and dramas. 'Cherchez la femme!' We have been long labeled as the sinners since the dawn of male-centered religions - Eve is the ultimate sinner, stamped and doomed. FATALE is our given fate not our inherent nature. It is society who keeps making sure we are seen as vain and criminal. We don't have to be angry or ugly feminists in order to counter-act these statements made for us by male-societies. We can express beauty, be seductive and be loud. Legacy Fatale wants to build a counter-narrative to these common definitions. Trough performance acts, we translate forgotten myths into contemporary art practices. Using modern dance techniques, our performances are tackling phenomenology of the body, social practice, pagan rituals, ceremonial processions. Performers and talents are gathered throughout the year invited to build workshops on female leadership. Each projects is geared towards raising community awareness and embraces a multi-cultural approach. Media installations are designed to a reinterpretation of art history, re-contextualizing notions of leadership, worship, feminisms, and iconographies in public spaces.
